[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was driving along the Burnt River Canyon that is famous for its large Bighorns and Rattlesnakes, as well as its large accumulation of independent and commercial gold mining operations that can be spotted throughout the area. I was driving on the unpaved, dirt, bumpy road and came about a turn and there stood about thirty Ewes, and after taking a few images I proceeded to drive and into the very next turn there stood about the same number of Rams. That evening I drove to the end of the road and on my return as the sun had by then set, came across the huge meadow area and there were nearly 200 head of mule deer surrounding me on the roadway eating the grass. This is also cougar and elk country, I have not spotted a cougar as of yet, but have seen every large mammal and reptile that is associated to this area.
This was taken with Fujichrome 50 without a tripod

Hello Steven,
Always interesting to see the shots taken in the wild. It is more difficult, but more exciting to do. Must have been great to see all these animals! I like the earth-tones of this picture. Perhaps a little overexposition, especially visible on the animals. Thanks also for your enthusiastic note.
Best regards
