Photograph of the Month October 2022 Arctic Hare in Winter

The photograph of the month for October 2022 comes from my March expedition to Ellesmere Island in Winter (Read the Trip Report) and is of an Arctic Hare in -46º Celsius. Although working and photographing in this sort of extreme cold is never easy, the results can be extremely rewarding. This style of high-key white-on-white wildlife photography is the primary reason I feel so drawn to photographing wildlife in the Arctic. The opportunities for subtle, gentle tonalities in the wildlife, snow, and ice make for superb opportunities that are monochromatic in nature, but highly emotive. In this instance, the Arctic Hare was perfectly positioned, looking into the frame on soft white snow and a clean white background of soft clouds.
