Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Elk in the Mist” by Kim Jane Peterson. Location: Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.

“My husband and I headed out to String Lake in Grand Teton National Park for the sunrise,” explains Peterson. “As we were hiking in to the lake, we heard the elk bugling all around us in the dark. I set up to shoot the sunrise, which was beautiful, and then lo and behold, this magical moment happened. The elk emerged from the woods to our left and then waded through the lake to the other side. This moment is forever etched in our memories!”

Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Exposure: 1/2 sec., f/11, ISO 100.
