Bison in front of the Wasatch RangeBison in front of the Wasatch Range – Nikon D300, f7.1, 1/640, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 242mm, natural light

When I saw this Bison grazing on a hill with the Great salt Lake and the Wasatch Mountain Range in the background I knew I had to get an image of it and I did… just this one image because a vehicle was coming up behind us and we needed to clear the road so we wouldn’t be impeding traffic. I didn’t have time to change my settings or check my exposure but the image turned out well.

I’m pleased with this Bison image because it contains so many icons of the western U.S., the Bison grazing on prairie grasses, the Great Salt Lake and a mountain range in the background.
