"Mule Deer and Mountain Tops"

Found a good size herd of Mule Deer feeding in a corn field near Cedar Vally Utah Sunday morning. Took the attached from my front seat at about 15 miles an hour after a short still photo session with the group. They spooked when I moved my car to follow them walking then broke into a full run when I tried to catch up to them. Had to shoot on the move ... road was empty, no side roads coming into it and I could see the entire length to the main road a mile away so no safety issues. I was shooting wide for Landscape with my Nikon 24-120. Also the D800E

The snow had stopped for a while Sunday and presented us with some beautiful skies. And as always the mountain tops around here provide a great backdrop for any shot.

cheers, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my fellow Nikonians. Good shooting in the coming year and here's to adventures to come.

Peter

I've been using this as my email Christmas card. Great that the wildlife here was willing to cooperate. This place is amazing.

Thanks Diane

I've told a number of photographer friends if they haven't been to this part of the U.S. they should set aside some time for a trip. Thankfully I have time to explore and see the four seasons..each one has something very unique to offer.

Great image! The way the deer are running almost looks like a single animal shot multiple times and overlaid.

Thanks Rob

They were grouped together when they first started running but eventually spread out into this line. If you look at the 3rd from the front it's a small 4 point buck. There was another buck in the group but he was further back. All of them joined another part of the herd just before they crossed the road in front of my car (see attached photos). Looks like there were about 20 altogether. Now I'm hoping to get some good shots of Pronghorn and Elk that come to the lower range to feed after snowstorms like the one we just had.

Thanks Izzie

It helps to have a cooperative subject...I've been looking for shots here where I could incorporate wildlife into the landscape but most of them have been too far away ...especially mountain goats and moose which I've seen in the mountains between here and Park City. This was the first chance I had to get close enough...and the deer did exactly what I needed...

cheers
Peter
