Vermillion Elk by LukeAustin Vermillion Elk by LukeAustin
I spent the morning following these Bull Elk along a frozen inlet at Vermillion Lakes, Banff National Park.

I have had a few queries if I have added the Elk to the scene. I have not! My processing of the image may give it a surreal look however.

More details of the morning: [link]

My images are available as high quality prints. They are printed in a professional lab on a variety of surfaces including lustre, matte, metallic, Fuji flex and canvas.
If you are interested in a print please email me and I will provide you with available sizes and pricing. (austo1234@hotmail.com)

Just curious...do you know how deep that water was?

The water is about 1ft deep. The surface was frozen, but not enough for me to be confident to walk over it. The Elk however were able to walk across it without falling through.

If an elk can walk across it safety, I'm sure you could've! They weight about 7x as much, and their feet are smaller so the weight isn't distributed as much, increasing the pressure on the ice. ...But I probably wouldn't have walked across it either! Beautiful capture! Getting so close to wildlife is always a great experience.
