Elk Wall Art
This elk wall art tells a story of a Dutch nature photographer who discovered the wilderness of the United States.
When we moved to Colorado, I loved scouting the wilderness, looking for wildlife. Coming from a very crowded Netherlands and Belgium (where I was born) it was thrilling to live in an area where wild animals roam the landscape. I had bought my very first 4X4 vehicle and enjoyed how I was able to bust my way through mud, dirt and over rocks. It’s during one of these very first field trips that I drove very close to the foothills of the majestic Sangre De Cristo mountain range, in Southern Colorado. I couldn’t see the houses in the valley anymore and the mountains towered high above me, like enormous giants.
How this elk wall art came about
Suddenly I saw tiny dots in the distance, that didn’t look like trees. I decided to park my car and slowly walk closer. With my wildlife photography equipment ready, I creeped closer and closer and soon felt adrenaline rush through my body. Right there in front of me, was a herd of the infamous elk. Experienced hunters spend days and weeks, trying to find these herds, and here I was, a total novice, so close to these wild deer.
At first they stayed calm and peaceful, and I began taking some pictures. But as a wildlife photographer you also want to get closer. So I began crawling over the rough landscape, trying to avoid being perforated by the hidden cactuses. When I knew I was close enough, I rose up and began taking even more beautiful pictures of this gorgeous wildlife. Of course the elk noticed me and the leaders began moving away, first slowly, then a little faster, until the entire herd was in a gallop.
I wasn’t disappointed, because seeing these wonderful animals run free, with the breathtaking mountains in the backdrop, was a site to behold. The trees still had some of their bright fall colors, which made this image even more gorgeous. Coming from a nation where millions of people are packed together, with highways zigzagging most of the scenery, this was an amazing experience. I hope you like the photograph that came out of this experience.
