Dawnography by LukeAustin Dawnography by LukeAustin
This image was shot a month or so ago when it was beginning to get rather cold in the mornings. On this particular morning it was not only cold but also dead calm causing frost to form on the grasses in the meadows.

I put on my waders and headed down into this particular boggy meadow, waiting for the first light to hit the mountain peak. As I sit there waiting I watched a Father, Mother and Baby Moose go about their morning. They were only about 40 meters away and seemed totally unbothered by me. I did keep a close eye on the Bull Moose though, just incase he began to show signs of agitation.

This is a spectacular shot, my friend. Particularly the clearness and crispness of it all, the textures of the landscape seeming to potrude from the photo... Incredible work, very incredible.

great simplicity of color which emphasizes what little there is. so rather than a simple landscape shot, you have translated an emotional scene. well done.

Thanks Mark. I didn't shoot the moose on this particular morning as I had my wide angle lens on and wanted to capture this shot first. By the time I waited for the light and captured this shot the moose had moved away a little.
I have many other moose shots from other mornings in this same area. Maybe I will post some to my blog shortly. [link]

great picture. it has an almost ethereal feel, like all the color is leaching out of the world (or maybe the other way around).
