Description

Two moose share a kiss in the early morning golden hour. A beam of light perfectly lands on them through moody clouds, and the Grand Tetons provide a bold and mystical backdrop. After the bull yearningly leaned in, the cow reciprocated and looked in his eyes the moment their noses touched, giving comfort to the bull as he gently closed his eyes and then bashfully moved his head away. The lighting here is natural, coming from a very lucky beam of light that perfectly highlights the subject; it has not been photoshopped, it actually happened this way. Getting this shot involved waking up an hour before sunrise, hiking about a mile through dense sage brush, and getting very, very blessed by great lighting coinciding with a magical moment.
