Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Enjoying The View” by Gene Putney. Location: Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

“On an August afternoon I was traveling over Trail Ridge Road and spotted this lone Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep ram relaxing on the tundra,” explains Putney. “He was in a nice setting that worked well for capturing a portrait of him as he enjoyed the view.”

Nikon D500. Exposure: 1/200 sec., f/5.6, ISO 400.
