Fearless Red Dogs

My trip to Colorado, Montana and Wyoming was a whirlwind of travel, photography and amazing animal encounters.  I didn’t manage to photograph every encounter, like the wolf the we followed as it trotted down the road in the light of our headlights, then turned around to stand 10 feet from the vehicle window before melting … More Fearless Red Dogs

In the fall my photography has to focus on the landscapes.  The wildlife are still here, but they arent … More Day 15: Wildlife and On To The Tetons
