September trip to see PA Elk
In September I decided to do something that I do not usually do photographically. I took a trip to a location for the specific reason of photographing one and only one animal. Normally I like to travel to places that give me a range of options for photographic subjects. I like to travel to places that offer possible mammals, birds, and landscapes. One subject I have always wanted to photograph is Elk. I live in NY and there is a well known herd of elk about a 3 hour drive away in PA. So my wife and I decided to take a trip out there and see if we would be able to see the elk. We were treated to quite a nice display of wild elk. It is amazing to see them and hear them bugling. It was such a great experience. I even got some nice images out of it which is good for a first attempt at photographing a new subject. I am trying to decide if I want to try and go back to photograph them in the winter. I think the Elk in the winter landscape would make some amazing images. I think if I do that though it will be a multiple day long trip.
