Artist's Description

Dear Redbubble friends!

I am honoured and very happy to announce that my photo of roe deer in snow blizzard is a Runner-up in Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2012 competition in Nature Black & White category!

This years competition has attracted over 48,000 entries from 98 countries.
The images, submitted by professional and amateur photographers alike, were selected for their creativity, artistry and technical complexity.

“Despite it being a bitterly cold winter day, Remo had faith that the light would hold out as he headed towards Vooremaa Landscape Reserve, in Estonia, and a particular area that is a hotspot for roe deer. The deer are hunted and so are very nervous, and the wind was lashing snow across the frozen ground. Then late afternoon sunlight began to stream through the clouds and give the whole scene a beautiful glow. All Remo needed was for ‘a deer to walk through the frame’. Forty minutes later, the scene was ‘everything I had hoped for and more’, as this individual picked its way across the stark landscape, its long shadow providing the magic touch. The beauty of the picture belies the tough time this roe deer would have been having. Only the strongest survive winter in Estonia.

Canon EOS-1D Mark III + 300mm f2.8 lens + 2x extender; 1/800 sec at f9; ISO 400."
