This Rocky Mountain National Park bull elk was along a wooded area prior to sunrise. He had a small harem that he kept a close. After the sun came up he exited the woods with the cows. His harem began to feed in a small meadow below the ridge pictured above. He positioned himself there above the harem to observe for any likely competitors. I was in the meadow as well and angled myself so that I could catch the sunrise in the background. I spot metered the chest area so the sky would not blow him out and you could still see fur detail.
