A Cold Swim

Fine art prints and posters available of this photograph

Photographed on a chilly Autumn morning in Estes Park Colorado at Lake Estes, we were photographing the sunrise when all of the sudden we heard bugling across the lake and the next thing we know he hopped in and started to swim over. I got the car as fast as I could and grabbed my 200-400 and started shooting. What a scene! The light was hitting parts of the lake as the fog was lifting and here he was coming out with water dripping off him. Excited? Is German beer good? lol
