Churchill, Canada
A red fox is braces against the wind during a Manitoba blizzard. The high winds kicked up a lot of snow and decreased the visibility. To make this photo, I stopped down the lens to increase the depth of field, in case an errant snowflake threw the autofocus off, and waited for a lull in the gusts for a clear shot. The intensity of the winds can be observed by the swirling and horizontal streaks cutting across the frame. The fox’s bushy tail behaved more like a sail, and would catch the wind, altering its trajectory. This fox was sheltering behind this rock, before returning to its den. Note the lichens growing on the exposed part of the rock.
