    Nature Conservancy Tallgrass Prairie Preserve (NE Oklahoma) this morning. Walking North into blowing snow to get to the pond.

    EDIT: Mrs. Peeb suggested that the crop was too tight. I warmed the color and cropped initially. Perhaps best closer to SOOC:

    Now that is just stunning I think, you caught the Bison beautifully trudging it`s way through the falling snow.

    "Back when I was a young calf son, it was uphill BOTH ways to the watering hole, and the snow was past our horns!"

    Great image - have you tried this in high-contrast black & white?

    He’s not going to be happy when it gets to the pond and it’s frozen.

    Both are great Peeb and the BW looks timeless.

    Nice capture @Peeb. I don't often do this but that was such a good image, that I thought I'd try a B&W conversion in PS. Used a B&W layer with luminosity as the blend mode and then did a gradient layer for the b&w conversion that I typically do but made it a little darker than I would have normally done.

    Great photo! I really like all the uncropped edits (Ron Lanes too). Can't decide which I like better!
