Black Wolf in Shadows

When I took the picture, it was hard seeing him in the shadows with the the trees also in the way. When I captured him, did his nose show, or was it covered in shadow too? I couldn’t tell from the distance I was from him.

Traditional cast.

I thought it was interesting to see what a black and white wolf would like in the black shadows in black and white. I think I like the blue cast better. In any event, it gives a different feel to the shot. I was thrilled to see when I got home and was able to look at the pictures on my computer, that the shadow from the tree branch didn’t hide his beautiful face. This was the alpha male. And his eyes were sharp and watching me, perfect for the shot.

I love it when wild animals are so nice to give me a great photo op! And better still, that I managed to capture the shot without making a total mess of it!

Have a super great weekend! Off to write!
