The light wasn’t as good yesterday morning on as the forecasters had predicted but that shouldn’t be a surprise, those forecasts are more often wrong than they are right.
I was able to take a very nice series of low light American Bison bull portraits despite the lack of clear skies and sunshine on Antelope Island. I have tons of American Bison images in my portfolio but not that many portraits so when I can get them, I take them. It almost seems silly not to.
This bison bull was resting at the top of a hill surrounded chewing his cud. I also don’t have many bison portraits where the teeth of the bison are visible so I was happy about that too.
I am pleased with how these portraits turned out even if I didn’t have the sweet light I had been expecting.
One bit of exciting news from my neck of the desert valley is that the bison on the island have calved and I saw quite a few bison babies or as they are also affectionately known, “Little Reds”. They were on the south end of the island, far from the road and up on the hillside.
Life is good.
