My Favorite Images / Sunrise over Elk

 

I was able to capture this sunrise over the Madison River Elk herd in Yellowstone National Park. The smoke from forest fires of 2009 had blanketed the Madison River basin. The smoke acted like a large diffuser on the early morning sun and I was able to place the sun directly in the photograph without overexposing everything completely.
