Bison in the Badlands

I was very pleased with this iconic image of the American West that I captured in the Badlands National Park. We saw several bison walking towards this ridge as the sun was setting, and drove ahead of them to position ourselves in the hope of getting a shot like this, and got lukcy that this one co-operated! He was only silhouetted on the horizon like this for a few seconds. I shot some that were zoomed in more tightly, but like this one with a wider view of classic Badlands scenery in the foreground.
