[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Driving across the Snake River bridge last week there was quite a backlog of cars. So I pulled over to see what the excitement was about. Right there in the river were 3 moose. I'll start with this long shot to give you a look at the context.

Superbe conposition tout y est.

Hi Mike,
If a person reads the title and does not know about the Snake river, one could start to wonder what snake could eat a Moose.
I like the way you composed this photo. Not only showing the moose, but also show the wonderful Tetons and the beautiful colored trees.

Hi Mike

I love all your moose shots and don't have enough points to do justice to them all (I will be back). I love the whole composition here with the amazing colours and perfect framing. REally stunning!



Hi Mike,
A great shot with the moose in the foreground, and the beautiful scenery of the landscape. Perfect composition and framing in the vertical format. Beautiful fall coloring. Man that is a great scene.

A great shot of the moose in it's natural habitat! The mountains and bright colours in the back really add to the photo, I wish those branches werent in the foreground, but I understand they were probably quite the pest for you to try to avoid, anyways you've clearly made the best of this shot, well done!
