Parley With Authority And Rebuke

Parley With Authority And Rebuke

“Like an old council of clowns, laughing with folly like the whole world belongs to them, coyotes invoke the nightly right of parley to each other, full of authority and rebuke to all who care. I will listen, I will learn, to speak their ancient language – oh yes, I yearn.” ~ Jack Mountain

Photographed in Northern Arizona on the Navajo Nation, in the late afternoon just before sunset. The sun was still bright, but on the other side of the animal, thus making a good exposure of the moving animal, terrain, and sky impossible at best. I knew this and chose it. I chose to focus on the coyote, but expose for the bright sky behind, and create this wonderful silhouette.
