Artist's Description

It was a surprisingly cold morning – the weather forecast said it was 23F/-5C, but at the fox hole, it was a chilly 11F/-11C. The fox hole runs along a large creek, and so sits in a large depression, so with the katabatic effect, it draws the cold air from the surrounding area.

Just setting up my gear without gloves in the parking lot got me painfully cold then numb hands – it took about 10 minutes of vigorously shaking my hands and swinging my arms to restore feeling in them (time to stock up on those warming packets again).

I only saw 1 fox today – the new alpha male. I heard several reports of coyote activity in the park, and the foxes are much more skittish when they’re around.

In this image, the sun is just barely cresting the ridge, and most of this area is still in deep shadow. He’s running out of an area of shadow, and I’m on my knees behind the tripod, waiting for him to run into an area with some sunlight. I only had a couple of frames before he veered off to the east and disappeared.
