[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
October is not a nice time for the elks in the Swedish forests. Thats when the elkhunting is starting. (September in the northern part of the country) About 100000 elks are shot every year in Sweden during the hunting season. But I´m only shoot them with my camera:-)

Hello Peter,
This is a very special shot. I like the autumnal atmosphere you caught in this picture a lot. Interesting also to see that the elk is willing to disappear betweeen the birches. That's nature pure.
Thanks a lot for this magnificent picture

nämen hallå där!
satt just och vänta på en
snygg älgbild från dig:)
very beautiful with the
nice autumn colours in
the background,sharp and
well composed!
great peter!

Hi Peter, splendid running elk, excellent composition with splendid focus and great blurry BG, very well done, ciao Silvio

Beautiful shot. I love the fact that the legs match the trees fairly well. It's nice to see you hunting with a camera. I find it's more of a challenge myself what with the camera having more settings than a gun. Plus you get more shots in. LOL Nice shot.

Hi Peter
great action shot with good compo and lovely colours, nice posture of the elk.
imho the only problem is that the elk is running away from the photographer instead of coming into the image, but that is how it mostly goes

hello Peter

wath great action shot of this elk
i like the action, the autumnal colors
and the framing of the image

in my life i saw 2 Mooses (elks in Canada) the first time
it was running and it was like a earth earthquake !



bonjour peter
quelle chance tu as eu de pouvoir prendre l'animal en mouvement, tres bonne réussite, un peu flou mais ce qui est normal
belles couleurs, bravo, merci a toi de partager
