The problems you can have with snow

Went out today to get some of my snow photos and most looked like this elk. Had 79 photos on this camera of elk and they all had the snowy limb in the middle of the picture. Glad it was only elk passing by and not a big cat.

I think the photo works well with the limb. In fact, it illustrates how heavy the snow was at the time.

Sometimes in my favorite images, animals are partially obscured - but still plainly identifiable.

My appreciation for this has grown over time, and I resist deleting images until i have had a chance to get a second impression, after I reconsider my expectations and, instead, appreciate the result.

I think that's what is so unigue about game cameras, the fact that I can spend hours setting up for a great photo and most of the time luck can make a big difference.

I believe this is what seperates game camera photos from someone taking animal photos in a zoo or with a telephoto lense in the wild. Can't think of anyone triggering the camera with a snowy limb blocking the view.
