    I really hate it when someone walks into my shot...

    This is the Eagle River Nature Preserve in Chugach State Park near Anchorage Alaska. We had driven and hiked for hours in this area looking for moose, bears, and the other wildlife known to frequent the area. We didn't find any. Of course when we went back for sunset, two moose wandered by...

    Nice one Kyle. I would love to have a moose wander into my shots at Schwabacher Landing.

    They only arrive when you aren't looking for them :) Nice late day light for their portrait in front of the mountains.

    those pesky moose, absolutely ruined your shot. they have no respect at all for you as a landscape photographer. ;) but it was nice to see that you persevered in spite of the hardship you faced and still managed to catch that beautiful pink and purple light on the mountain.

    Wow, this is really sweet Kyle! I also wish I could get more interruptions in my landscape shots like this.

    You may not have been looking for Moose on this occasion, but man its great that they wandered in, really adds a whole new dimension and sense of scale to the scene. Very nice.
