It was one of the Time magazine Photos of the Year 2000, and ran in its The Year in Pictures special edition.

"Some consider the image shown, taken by an observant wildland firefighter, to be one of the most beautiful photographs of both a wildfire and wildlife taking refuge. The photo was taken on August 6, 2000, by John McColgan who was a fire behavior expert working under a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and attached to an Alaskan Type I Incident Management Team on a Montana wildfire.‚Äč

The famous photo was taken on a Sunday, in late evening where several fires burned together near Sula, Montana (population 37) and turned into one large 100,000-acre wildfire.

McColgan just happened to be standing on a bridge crossing the East Fork of the Bitterroot River in the Sula Complex of the Bitterroot National Forest in the state of Montana where he took what is now called his "elk bath" digital Image.

McColgan was employed by the Alaska Fire service and was on loan to Montana and acting as an expert on wildfire behavior.
