Winter Grazing by tourofnature Winter Grazing by tourofnature
This shot represents a lot of planning and a little luck. I've been to Antelope Island State Park in Utah a couple dozen times, on the lookout for an evening such as this. I've tried numerous times to include these enormous wild Bison in one of our famous Utah sunsets but on all previous attempts either the light didn't develop, or the Bison obliviously moved on out of a good composition.

Finally on Saturday both the weather and the wildlife cooperated for me and this shot is the result.

Antelope Island State Park, Utah.

You're right awesome shot.. but 1 sec. I'm surprised the buffalo didn't move
for such a long exposure. I really like the composition. and the sunset is great.

I had to take probably 45-50 shots to get one where they were standing still, the ones w them moving looked kinda cool too with the blurry outlines of the profile. Their movement is another reason this kind of shot has eluded me.

Stunning shot. Sweet composition and beautiful colours. A bit surreal and very calm.... this shot has a soothing effect for sure :aww:

That's exactly what I was thinking as I was taking the shots, Antelope Island feels like a step back in time. The geology is fascinating too, some of the oldest rocks on the planet have been found there.
