Wildlife Photography

People come from all over the world to photograph Clear Creek County’s diverse wildlife population including, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, Deer, Moose and a variety of birds.

Photo Tip: Wildlife photography uses wide apertures to achieve a fast shutter speed, freeze the subject’s motion, and blur the backgrounds. Wildlife is also usually shot with long telephoto lenses from a great distance; the use of such telephoto lenses frequently necessitates the use of a tripod (since the longer the lens, the harder it is to handhold). Use your imagination, capture nature’s wonders.
