[25th April, 2017] I am happy to let you know that my image below, taken in the forests in Kuhmo at the Finnish-Russian border, is honored with a Highly Commended Award in BioPhotoContest 2017.
The image shows a peaceful and wild male wolf photographed in the summer midnight. This is the kind of simple composited image I like to create, emphasizing how lucky we are to be given a small glimpse into the wolfs´ secret life.
Thanks to my good friends Sami and Lassi Rautiainen at Wild Finland for giving the possibility to experience free roaming wolfs on the Finnish-Russian border in Kuhmo.
