Buck in Snow, Foothills, Carson Valley

Often times there there will be an inversion effect that occurs in the Carson Valley. The weather will be reasonable at the top of the mountains, and a cloud layer will drop down near the ground in the valley. The valley floor will be extremely cold and foggy, and everything will frost over. As I was driving around the foothills looking for possible photo subjects I came upon this beautiful buck and his harem. He stood out beautifully in the morning light surrounded by snow and frosted sage brush. I was fortunate to have him pose so majestically. That is my kind of hunting.
