Adventures In July

July brings a fresh slate of activity here in Colorado.

The bulk of my moose photography is done each year in July and August and this year is not going to be much different.

I have two big moose photography tours planned, one in late July and the other in early August.

I’ll also start my new writing job with Fstoppers in July. I think I’m supposed to publish an article each week, so my laptop will be my constant companion while I’m working in Red Feathers, scouting for moose and taking photos.

There will be very few lazy days of summer this year.

Happy Moose Monday by the way.

Poorly Lit Spot in My Brain

One of the local photographers, Dawn Wilson, showed one of her moose touching noses photos on my Facebook Group, North American Nature, Wildlife & Landscape Photographers Association.

It struck a cord in me as this is one of the types of behavior shots you always look for. I have a few photographs of this action but I take them at infrequent intervals.

It’s not often one gets to see this and even then it’s not always in conditions where a nice photo can be taken. It shows up unannounced and lasts for only a few seconds. One’s brain must stay in gear as well.

I managed this shot earlier this week and realized that my brain cells worked a bit more in concert regarding watching and waiting for it to possibly occur.

So, I have to thank Dawn for flipping on the lights in a poorly lit spot in my brain.
