Moose stepping into the light, Grand Teton National Park

A bull moose steps out of the shadows and into the light

After watching this large bull moose move through the harsh lighting of a late-morning forest, he stepped out into a small clearing near the Gros Ventre River in Grand Teton National Park. It was hard to balance the light and shadows while he was among the trees, but for a brief instant his whole head, including those newly cleaned antlers, was in the light.

    1. Thanks, John! This was at the tail end of the good light after sunrise, but with it filtering through the canopy, it still kept some of that extra magic.

  2. Perfect lighting! What a stunning animal!
