Hello there... by Chris Snyder

Sometimes you just have to like a shot that you get out of the car window. This big bull gave me a big elk stare and I obliged by snapping a shot of him. He is about to shed that wonderful rack. It can grow back as much as an inch a day in March and April. Canon 7D, Canon 15-85 lens.

Hi, my name is Chris Snyder and I reside in beautiful Western North Carolina, USA. I have been a swim coach since 1990 and have been selling my photography since 2006. My wife and I are avid mountain bikers and also are very involved in animal rescue. We always have a menagerie of some size and makeup. Most of my images are of nature whether wildlife or landscapes. I hope you enjoy.

    You were pretty close to this handsome boy and did a pretty great job from that car window! Love the blue to grayish background tones and how they contrast with the brown tone of the bull Elk! : )

  • He was right outside the car door. Not at all concerned by a measly human. Thanks very much Sandy.
