I captured this photo last winter in Yellowstone as this big ram made its way from the top of the rocky hill top to the meadow below for better foraging during the storm.

All your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated

Wonderful image indeed. It almost looks like a watercolor.

The harsh conditions that wildlife have to endure during the cold winter months is brought home with this lovely action capture, Ken! The ram sliding down the snow covered rock face during the snow storm really tells the story. A must click for the full view and details! Excellent shot.

Terrific action shot, especially well seen in a snowstorm. Great story-teller.
