Bull Elk. SMP 2011 Oct CA 644
Gold Bluff Beach, CA. October, 2011.
During my October, 2011, northern California photography trip, my mentor and friend, Keith Walklet, took us to Gold Bluff Beach on the Pacific coast. I never expected to find a magnificent 12 point bull elk on the beach less than 100 yards from the ocean, but he was there, seemingly on his own - we did not see any others anywhere near. I was about 100 feet from the bull for this picture, and hoped that he did not take any further interest in me!
