[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I led a TE Trek through the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in 2008, and on the last day that Peter Boehringer and I were there at the Painted Hills Unit we ventured into a new valley that we had discovered, and in that trek earlier in the morning we watched a group of female Pronghorn Antelope watching us as intently as we were watching them. We then, after completing our trek drove back to Mitchell for lunch and returned about 3 PM to find the Buck standing on the Red Hill that you see him positioned on in this scene as he was looking up at the hill and seemed to question to, "Where Am I?" There was very little time to stop the car, grab my camera out of the bag, change lenses, add my 1.4 tele., and position it on my tripod before he ran off, but with a little work I managed to save a memory to share with you all.

Stunning photograph with powerful colors ( perhaps a bit too powerful in my opinion ), amazing composition, briliant dept of field and detail Steven. Please, reduce just a bit the saturation of the colors and see the difference, may improve the impact a bit. Have a great day Steven and all the best.

Bonjour Steven,
Encore une image de cette région lunaire et magnifique. L'apparition de la petite antilope devait être magique. Une image spéciale, une reconstitution d'un souvenir inoubliable pour toi, certainement!
Bonne fin de semaine

Hi Steven
Wow, the colors of the of the hills are just perfect and very natural looking, if you know what I mean. I think this is an amazing image with the pronghorns standing in the foreground. Very impressive.
TFS this special day.

This is a fabulous shot!
