Lone Bison

I’m changing it up a bit and bringing you some wildlife today.  This image is so simplistic, but an image that could be interpreted to say so many things depending on the perspective.  I really like the compression brought to this image by the long lens and the layers it created.

My 70-200mm lens (and in this image used with a 2x Extender) has become one of my favorite lenses. It so versatile from capturing sports and action as well as being used for portraits. I love the fall off of the lens and the why it compresses images to isolate the subject. Here it is the Lone Bison from one of my favorite places, an open field near Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park.

    Love the layers and composition, Rick. This is a sheer delight.

  • Really like this shot. I love the framing and the way the trees seem to make a layers of depth as it moves out of the image. Nice one.

  • Awesome capture of nature. Nice one Rick.

  • Nice layering and compression. By the look of that beast, I think you were spotted. I don’t think I would want to challenge that one to a fight!
