Elk Herd Wading on the Beach

This is another photo depicting my chance encounter with a large herd of elk on the morning on Feb. 12, 2014 following a violent storm the night before along the beach in Seaside, Oregon. I followed them at a distance with my 300mm long zoom lens for about an hour or so as they finally crossed the Necanicum River which flows into the ocean from there. It was one of the most memorable moments of photography in my life. In this photo they seem to be testing the water as they waded on the beach.
