Elk Herd, Autumn • A bugling bull elk herding his cows in Grand Teton National Park at daybreak on a cool autumn morning. Fall colors and the steam of the bugling bulls breath are testement of the frosty fall air.  The elk rut is one of the coolest, easily accessable wildlife shows in nature.  I love to photograph it.

Elk of Jackson Hole and Grand Teton Park number in the thousands, this majestic species is often seen in our meadows at dawn and dusk but during winter when they all come down from the mountains they can be seen most anytime if you know where to look.

Elk were named by the early settlers, but some people prefer to call it by the Shawnee name wapiti (WAA-pi-tea) meaning “white rump.” The name "Elk" is a bit confusing because in Europe, moose are called "Elk." and the European "red deer" is the same as the North American Elk, which muddies the water even further. Evidently, the same naming scheme that called for the American bison to be called a buffalo.

Elk were valued by the early settlers and Native Americans as a valuable food source, hides and fur for clothing, and antlers for utensils and trophies. Today Elk are economically valuable for hunting and tourism they bring to the mountains of the west.

I spec them on “Moab’s  Lasal Exhibition Luster” photo paper. This paper weighs in at a healthy 300gsm, ideal for gallery and exhibition prints, the new fourth-generation coating ensures the highest possible d-max and color holdout.
