|It was a serendipitous morning. I was looking for moose, but found an elk harem at Sprague Lake, RMNP, instead. The rut has begun. Sprague Lake was an exciting visit for many tourists today. I can't think of a more beautiful spot for wildlife sightings, landscape scenes and lake reflections.

One person commented about cloning out the people. That reflects a misunderstanding of who owns the national parks. Must be from a different country.

This image was captured on 08-28-16, after the speed challenge was announced. I hope DPC doesn't open up submissions to the "mining of archives" in the future. The motivation to pick up the camera and engage in fresh photography is an important element to the significance of this photography contest.

The interface of the people and the wildlife/scenery is an essential part of the national park system. It would have been foolish and unethical and a misrepresentation to clone out the people and cars. The people are an important part of the story.
