Bison Bulls Fighting In The Snow And Missing My Camera Blues

/, Antelope Island State Park, Davis County, Utah/Bison Bulls Fighting In The Snow And Missing My Camera Blues

Bison Bulls fighting in the snowBison Bulls fighting in the snow – Nikon D810, f6.3, 1/2500, ISO 2500, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light

It has been 8 days since I shipped my Nikon D810 to Nikon, it has been in the “Shop” for at least three days and I am getting anxious for it to be shipped back to me.

This morning it is raining outside and we sure need the moisture. At least I can take comfort in the fact that it has been mostly cloudy here in the mornings since Monday and I haven’t gone out to photograph because of it so it was probably a good time to send my camera in to have the rubber grip replaced on the memory card door.

This photo of Bison bulls fighting in the snow on Antelope Island State Park was taken the end of December 2014 with the Nikon D810 using a high ISO because it was so dreary that morning and I was very pleased with the results even with the high ISO.

I want my camera back in my hands!

Life is good.

    So much power…
    I hope your camera is back in your anxious hands soon.

    The implied power in the muscle and bulk of those two behemoths blows me away! Reminds me of an encounter in South Dakota several years ago between a VW “bug” whose driver had stopped to photograph a bison bull as he grazed by the side of the road. The bull considered it an intrusion and turned the car over…can’t remember now if the driver was still in it or if she had gotten out just before the incident happened. She was darned lucky not to be hurt. Sure hope you get your camera back VERY soon….

    Wonderful capture Mia! Having just returned from a tour in Yellowstone, I now know from experience how difficult it is to capture the tonal variation in these magnificent animals. They are not just big brown beasts, there are many shades of brown and black etc, and you have done a beautiful job. Hope you get your camera back soon.

    My best,
