This photo was taken one year ago today! The scene doesn’t look like this right now though as the aspens have just started to turn, and the bull and cow moose seem to still be hanging out in different areas! .
Stop by my shop on Second in Lake City or visit my website for a print!
“My perfect Colorado autumn scene!
I was watching a cow moose graze by this pond for a bit just willing her to get in the water. In the 8 years I’ve lived here I’d never I’d never seen a moose in this pond, but I knew it’d be a great photo. Finally, she did! And I watched her for 15 minutes taking photos, as happy as I am capable of being. Then I heard the crunching of branches and out of those aspens appeared another cow plus calf and a big bull! They proceeded to hop in the pond and pose as the sun lit up the clouds over the La Garita mountains creating just about the most perfect scene I could ever imagine. They stayed for a long time into the twilight allowing me to take a few hundred photos before they were muscled out of the pond by some thirsty cows. A perfect fall night and a new favorite photo set of mine!”
