[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi All,
Well today is archive day once again. This image is what Evelynn Smith can look forward too when she comes to the Cypress Hills this summer. This herd of Elk with cows, calves and young bulls was captured on the bench, which is the flat top of the Cypress Hills. Thet are standing in a field full of Lupine which is all the purple color. I hope you enjoy this and are having a great weekend.

Hola Ricl,

Hello Rick,
Interesting content you shared here.
Guess they're all waiting for Evelynn:-)
Well done

hello Rick

a very beautiful photography of this herd of Elk with cows
shot with very fine POV, fine DOF, i love the eye-contacts
of the ones on the left of the image, and also the view
of your image, behind the animals (the background)
it is like if it was the infinit, TFS


Thanks for the preview Rick. We are looking forward to seeing your part of the world. I've always loved the prairies in spring. Sorry I haven't been very active for a couple of weeks. I have the "winter blues" : (
I'll have to visit my archives where I know I have lots of images...just not lots of motivation right now. I find an image and for the life of me I can't seem to come up with a title or note. I have the "blahs!!!"... if you know what I mean. I'll be back soon! : )

I like that you captured this herd on the ridge. I always like animals isolated against the sky. It is a nice shot.

Evelynn : )

Hello Rick

The lupines really create a beautiful scene ,the elk herd is magnificent.
A beautiful landscape shot that includes so many elk.
They are well placed along the horizon.
Excellent POV.
Great job.


Hi Rick,
a great view of this Ungulata group, i love the wonderful landscape.
Well done.

Hi Rick,
A nice capture of this herd of elks. Very well composed with good details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

great pic, TFS Ori

Lucky Ev! It was your superior work which brings here there I'' wager. this being another example of where you really live or roam should I say.I guessed at Lupine before reading notes..I feel so special:-) Well Lupine is not hard to see for sure and it makes for a tri coloured piece with a slight mystique in which way they shall go next...

Hi Rick,

A spectacular sight of all of the Elks and the field so beautiful with the lupines. Each animal is well focused - even the one looking the wrong way. I see on that day you had an Arizona sky. We have it today and at 11 in the morning are up to 71F. Not trying to make you jealous.

beautiful open field of wildflower and the elk is just bonus. Don't really have a lot of time to be active here. Got to catch up with other things in life. I will check in once in a while my friend.

I would love to come up north one day to see all the beautiful site that you have shown us here.
