It was a magical Colorado morning when this image was taken. This buck appeared and the light just bathed the area in a pink glow. I think possibly an all-time personal favorite.

Oh, that colour! A beautiful buck and setting - and then that pink blush of dawn just takes it to a whole new level. Gorgeous image once again, Terry - and yes, I Love it!!

Another great image! This large Mulie against a colorful BG reminds me of why the state's name is Colorado.
