Jasper Elk Rut

October 01, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

One of my favourite things to photograph since I moved out west in 2013, is elk.  Such a beautiful and majestic animal,  especially during the rut,  when the males are fighting other males over the females in the area.  The fall of the year is my favourite season,  so it makes the shooting even more enjoyable.  I love photographing them so much that it has become my annual vacation,  to take a trip to Jasper for a few days in September.  So far, each trip has yielded some great photographs,  mostly elk,  but other wildlife as well.  The males are extremely dangerous during this time of the year,  but if you give them space,  observe and photograph from a distance with a long lens,  you should be rewarded with some exceptional pictures.  Not only that,  with the rut being in the fall,  the parks are not as crowded as they are during the summer months.  New pictures have just been added to the elk/moose gallery.  Enjoy,  and feel free to drop a comment.  Happy shooting.
