Tundra Tarmigan
Photo By David Bodine

  • Title: Tundra Tarmigan
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: SECRET
  • Nearest Town: GRAND LAKE
  • Brief Directions: TOP OF THE WORLD, WELL NOT QUITE BUT AT ABOUT 12000 FT ALPINE. TOP OF THE DEVIDE BETWEEN ESTES PARK AND GRAND LAKE. IN ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK. TAKEN 6/18/2013 OFF TRAIL, TOP SECRET SQUIRREL PLACE.
  • Notes: SOLO ALPINE PHOTO BACKPACK TRIP AT 13000 IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS. YEE HAAAAAA.
  • Description: I HAVE BEEN SPENDING ALOT OF TIME ABOVE 12000 THIS YEAR. THE ALPINE IS MY FAVORITE PLACE. I WAS WORKING ON SOME PANORAMAS OF A SNOW CORNACE AND I KEPT HEARING THIS GUY. I COULD NOT SEE HIM AT FIRST HE BLENDED IN SO WELL. HE TURNED OUT TO BE VERY PHOTOGENIC. LETTING ME GET WITHING ABOUT FIVE FT. HE HAD A MATE WHICH WAS NOT AS INTERESTED IN ME AS THIS ONE. I SAW HIM THREE DAYS AFTERWARDS. HE LOST HIS MATE AND HE BECAME EVEN MORE VOCAL. I COULD EASILY PICK OUT HIS CALLS INBETWEEN THE YELLOW BELLIED MARMOTS AND THE PIKE. WE BECAME GOOD FRIENDS UP ON THAT MOUNTAIN I THINK ABOUT HIM WHEN I LOOK UP AT THE DEVIDE.
  • Gear: CANNON 5D MARK 2 CANNON 70-200MM F2.8 L 2 POLORIZER FILTER. HAND HELD

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!
