Animal: Alaskan Moose
Location: Alaska, United States of America
Gaze at one of the most iconic species of Alaska, Moose, as the photo captures the essence of fall. Every Fall, Moose congregate in valleys across Alaska to fight, sometimes severely injuring the other, just for the chance to have offspring. Alaska is known for its unpredictable and unforgivable weather, so Moose do not use temperature to determine the time period of the rut. Instead, Moose use the days length, or total amount of daylight to figure out when the cows are ready.
In an area rarely ventured is a valley that is the heart of the rut for a small population of Alaskan Moose. The only sounds heard are the wind whipping through the valley and the unique noises indicating the rut is in motion. From antlers colliding to thrashing their racks against shrubs and trees, these kings of the north are putting on one of the greatest shows nature has to offer. After camping in the heart of Moose country, I glassed down into the valley to locate many Moose. As the sun peaked above the mountains the moose and rich vegetation were lighting up with warm light.
After walking into the valley I stood in awe of a large bull Alaskan Moose. The Moose was slowly navigating across the valley, so I was able to position myself into a ditch directly in front of where the lines from the mountains intersect. As I patiently waited, the Moose perfectly climbed a little hill covered with vibrant dark red vegetation. In awe, I captured the moment where the mountains and the Moose intersect. This moment shows why Mother Nature is truly the greatest artist of us all.
Each photo captured has a deep and intricate backstory, articulated above, that is printed alongside your print to give you the full behind the scenes look for each fine art photograph you purchase.
