This is part 10 in a series of blog posts that I am dedication to my favorite photos of 2009. Today’s inductee and now a resident in my “Animals” photo album is “Canmore Elk“. I took this photo July 28th, 2009 at 11:43 AM some just down the street from where I was staying in Canmore Alberta. This one I took with my Canon EOS10D SLR.
I was so sick after the race because of a severe sinus infection that I was not feeling like doing anything but lay around. It took me until 11 to get out of bed but I knew that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to get out and do some sightseeing which was not possible before the race.
The crew was gone and I forced myself to go out and take some photos so that when I did feel better I could enjoy the beauty I was surrounded by. I did a all afternoon jaunt that the helpful desk attendant and I conjured up. Looking back now as I sit here on the verge of the weekend I am enjoying and wishing for a road trip. That will come I suppose.
