Description
What a stunning morning: Photographed at an elevation of about 9,000 ft, these to big bucks met on this meadow with first light and started locking antlers right away, while the tall peaks of the Southern Rockies in the background were illuminated by the alpenglow of the rising sun. It was totally quiet except for the clacking sounds of their antlers hitting and the heavy breathing of the fighting bucks which was clearly audible, drifting across the expansive high alpine meadow.
