Deny it to a king? Then happy low, lie down! Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.
Henry The Fourth, Part 2 Act 3, scene 1, 30–31
A Bighorn Sheep Ram watches carefully over the herd. You will usually find a larger ram perched above the rest of the herd keeping watch. He stands majestic on his mountain top castle, he is king of the mountain.
On this day I shared the mountain top knowing that I was subject to his majesty's crown were the king to oppose my uninvited presence.
I moved very slowly while the king watched over the herd below. He seemed unconcerned by me, there seemed to be little doubt in his mind that I was no danger to him. I crept closer, perhaps 3-4 meters away until he looked at me.
I stopped and watched as he gave me a stern glare. I took slow steps backwards, then watched his gaze turn nonchalant and unconcerned again. The king went back to his pressing business and stood tall and majestic on his high thrown as I descended back down the tall hillside.
Immersing myself in my surroundings with a camera doesn't just turn down the noise of life, it powers it off completely. -Ryan Henke Studio
