The photograph of the month for December 2021 comes from my recent workshop in Finland (Read the Trip Report) to photograph Wolves, Bears, and Wolverine. This photograph was made from a ground-level hide in no man’s land between Finland and Russia. I carefully positioned the hide and framed the shot to include the small tree on the left-hand side to help balance the image with the wolf on the right. I was fortunate to not only have the wolf come into frame exactly where I had hoped, but also to have a good smattering of clean and fresh snow, which makes for a wonderful contrast with the fur of the wolf. The Wolf’s growl and expression complete the image. Shot with the Canon EOS 1DX MK3 and Canon 600mm f4L IS MK3.
