Knee Deep in Stillness by Jan Landers

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

This Bull Elk was one of 2 walking along the shoreline of Lake Estes this morning…..I loved this moment when he stood perfectly still in the water, knee deep in stillness, pausing from his sparring and thrashing to just ‘be’….it was a beautiful thing…..

    Oh wow, as exciting as the last one. I love the shape of the blue water by his head — inverted “V”

  • kay, thank you so much….i guess one would wonder why, living here and seeing these guys so often, why i would continue to take and post more and more elk shots…but they are just so beautiful, i can’t help but share….so happy you enjoy!!!
