Alone but not Lonely, Fox photo by Donna Ridgway

Donna Ridgway

Vaughn, United States

Artist's Description

Evening fell and this little fox sat on the hill surveying his world. You can see he’s alone, but he’s not lonely for he’s interested in the world around him. I loved the way my camera interpreted this low light scene.

I love this photo because I’m a “loner” myself. Nothing makes me happier than just being by myself in the natural world. Seeing this little fox, sitting there as content as he could be, reminds me of myself!

This is the first time, I’ve taken a photo of an animal, from the back, where the photo had so much feeling.


Photo taken with a Nikon D300, Sigma 170-500 mm lens. Shot Raw, south of Vaughn, Montana, across the Sun River. As Is. Hand Held.
ISO 400
F/6.3
Shutter Speed 1/250
