A couple from Spray Park in Mt. Rainier NP back at the end of August of this year.

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Don't you mean 'scape goats? ;-)

I like.

Cute title.
Wonderful sense of scale.
The richer colors of the grasses and trees makes the second my pick.

#2 very nice. The background has good contrast and large enough to give a sense of scale without being too large. The goats have a nice light on them too.
Must have been great to sit there and take it all in.

Hi Dan,
Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I like your title, too.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for looking. Yeah, the first seems to have picked up some of the fire smoke from east of the Cascades.

Hi dgdg,
Thanks for looking. It was a cool scene to watch.

John, you found your goats. Nice job on these, like the sense of scale in both. Rick

Hey John,

Very nice! It's hard to pick a favorite, perhaps #2. I think you could push the saturation a bit more in #1. for years I have wanted some shots like these, so congrats!

Rick,
Thanks, I appreciate your comments and I'm glad you like them.

Jim,
Thanks! I'm glad you like them. Thanks for the suggestion on #2. I pushed the sat a little harder and feared the FG was too saturated. I'll foll around with selective saturation. Maybe I can add a little more depth to the BG forest.

BTW, I know a couple places in MRNP that have herds like this. Let me know when you want to venture up this way.
