I really like this photo. I can really relate to it because I hunt all the time and if I were to kill a buck this size It would be awesome. I also love how she uses the landscape of what appears to be a desert with the skull just sitting in the middle. I love the dark blue of the sky and how it fades beautifully into the orange horizon.
