Narrative:; Three variables came together in this split second to allow this winter portrait to transcend most of my work with bison in Yellowstone.; The first is of course the proximity, which allowed for a standard lens and the contextual narrative that goes with it. The river detail behind lends to; the power of the image as it gives an emphatic sense of place and season. This proximity came from a combination of my experience of bison; movement and fluency in the use of remote control cameras. This is not something people should try in Yellowstone without a good guide and; extreme caution.; The second bonus is simply the position of the bison's head. The big males do resemble beasts from some sort of fantasy production and the lower; the camera is relative to the head, the more the sense of an encounter with a creature from another world is amplified. This looks like an animal from; a different planet - something "Thrones" would expect to see "North of the Wall". No other mammal on the planet looks more like a monster than a; male bison in the winter.; The third helpful variable is his front left leg suggests movement towards me and that is fortunate as bison can often be stagnant when they are; feeding. This picture has the dynamism we often seek.; We took this picture so early in the day that no one else was in Yellowstone National Park. We left the park when the tourists were arriving. That's the; the way we roll.
