Baby Moose on Moose Pond Drive

Two babies let me hang out with them (and their mom) for over 30 minutes one beautiful summer day.

#1 The pair of moose twins stood out amongst the selections. More often than not, wildlife in particular needs to fill the frame. It allows the viewer into their world. The frame here is filled with both tension, and instinct. A true moment of wilderness captured.

Image

#2 The aurora has been captured more frequently in recent years than ever before. They are always fascinating to witness and photograph. But, they need something more than just the sky. They need a sense of perspective, a sense of place. This image, with the curtains draped across the sky over a BWCA
lake and feather horizon of pines wonderfully captured this natural wonder.

Image
#3 The visual relationship of the three amigo's along with the hoar frost made this a special moment along the Trail.


Congratulations to Heidi with her winning shot "Spring Moose Twins"!

Thank you, Ken.

There were a lot a great entries in this contest! It's fun to see what others capture while out on their adventures.
I would also like to note that I appreciate the comments accompanying the images that won. Learning what makes an image stand out will help me as I compose scenes in the future!
