I woke up this morning to photograph the sunrise at Garden of the Gods. It was a brisk May morning, 40 degrees and windy, and it was still totally dark when I arrived. As the sky began to lighten, I noticed seven or eight deer around me lounging in the grass and feeding on some shrubs. I snapped a few pics with my Canon 6D DSLR camera and a Canon EF 70-300mm telephoto lens. This one is my favorite.
