Every season, I hope to expand my portfolio of work into new territory, pushing myself to do things that I've either not done well in the past or have failed to attempt.  This summer I've focused more on photographing the wildlife as part of the landscape.  Anyone with a long, telephoto lens can get close enough and photograph portraits, but making a successful animal/landscape image is much more difficult.  The elk in the image above are a very small part of the frame.  I photographed this with a telephoto zoom lens and carefully framed this image so the mountain would dominate the scene.  Below, the same mountain is visible from a different part of Yellowstone.  The bison were closer to me though I still needed a telephoto zoom to frame the image as I desired.  The challenge of successfully crafting an "animal in the landscape" is quite high but when it comes together, it's more more unique than another portait.
