This may be a bit deceiving. It is not as it appears. It’s not a buffalo? Well, the scholarly will tell you no, because there are no buffalo in the United States. It is a bison. Soapbox, I’ll move on. It is a buffalo. He is grazing. He is not at sunset. Wait! What? You heard me right.
This picture was actually taken in the afternoon. High and harsh sun battling it out with some wanna be storm clouds. For a while, the sun won. So, why does this picture look like a silhouette at sunset? Filters and a lot of shade. This guy was so dark that when I shot the photo, the shadow being cast upon him made look like a silhouette against a big blue sky. Beautiful, but not what I was really wanting.
I could have tried to turn up the shade and down the highlights. I actually did on another, but I didn’t like the way that he looked at that moment. I wanted something different. I wanted this and I think it looks pretty gosh darn good. Hope you do too.
Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
