Snapsot of two moose before foraging a lake, Looks like a pair trying to cross the river but they were two distinct individuals, both male, one was simply thirsty and was drinking the other was preparing to cross the water .
The larger male you see in the foreground is the same character from my previous photo of a moose feeding on fresh twigs, half emerged in water...
Shot was taken last year in my journey in Alaska, these particular animals I spoted inside the Kenaj Peninsula Wildlife Refuge in Kenai Peninsula ...
Because I love this image so much it suffered no post procesing but frame and resize, not a bit even a rotation of the horizont/tree line... Just stubborn, thats all...
Nikon N90s, Nikon Nikkor zoom at 70-280mm with 2x Quantarray TC , Fujicolor 100 ASA, Hakuba tripod with Velbon ballhead.

Really good photo. The colours are amazing, it almost looks like a painting. I love the composition. Very nice work.

It is a great composition with lively colours. You have really succeeded in showing the Alaskan wilderness. I could suggest that maybe rotate the canvas about 2 deg CCW. The tree line on level would improve it.

It is a very nice shot, the forest at the back with the nude trees is amazing. The water looks a bitout of level, a image rotation is needed. Thanks for posting.

Rado, Great shot! The REAL deal as they say!! The only time I've been to Alaska was to fly there in Dec. for a 2 week assignment 3 years ago. Perpetual twilight & a motel room..:-(((

A wishing shot for me, Radu. And a favorite one too.
It is very rare to see two males together without struggling.
Great post!

That's really nature here, kind of paradise you are conveying very well with these two mooses not even caring about your presence. A great feeling of peace and tranquillity. IMO, I would have straightened the horizon, though, but I understand you wanted to leave it as it is on paper. Lucky you to have been there, Radu.

A colourful and peaceful scene.I do find the tilt a little distracting,although I read your note.You really get around,don't you.

Love this, except the slant down to the right, good colour, and composition.

Very good Radu.
It looks like a oil painting.
Very good colours and composition.
As the others has mention , it's slant to the right.
Very well done.

Nice shot but the horizon is not flat and this makes the photo hard to read.

Colours are great, like old paintings. I like soft and warm light on your picture Radu.

Alaska is one places on earth that I would really like to visit and this image is fueling that wish.

Excellent work

However the picture is levelled, it's a nice piece of nature with these moose, colours and light are beautiful, Radu.

Landscape and animal combined, just the way I like it. This just looks like an Alaskan advert, great stuff.
The combination of colour and POV make this a really nice shot.

The photo is so alive. The colors are amazing and the composition is perfect. I love everything here, the subject and the background. THanks for sharing! Regards!

It is a great photo, good colours and composition.
THanks for sharing! Eyal

Hi Radu, This is gorgeous, the colours are wonderful. Nice capture of these two magnificant water loving beasts. :) Janice
