Tule Elk: An essay in photos

A bull elk walking the headlands of the Point Reyes National Seashore

I live near a large stretch of national park, and within that park there is an area that is protected for tule elk (a subspecies of our local elk). I try to take advantage of this natural resource from time to time by heading out and shooting a few of them (with the camera of course). Here are some of the images I’ve come up with. Many of them have stories behind them, that I will be including in the Anatomy of a Photo series. In the meantime, enjoy these images. (I have so many more, this is just a sampling of ones that have special meaning to me.)
