Born in Montana, raised in California, I’ve been holding a camera most of my life. I particularly love photographing the grand landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.

    How wonderful to see a large healthy herd of Bighorns. Super image, Bryan. Cat:)

  • I counted four full curls on the rams, and couldn’t see all of them with their heads down.

    This is fab, love the design/cropping which is just right!

  • Thank you, John. Yes, indeedy, I did do a bit of cropping from the original—but I left all the critters in the frame. ;-)

    Beautiful shot Bryan. I especially like the stark contrast of their light colored coats against the darker shrubs and grass. Well done.

  • Thank you for your thoughtful comments, Miles.
