Photo Of The Day By David Connel

Photo By David Connel

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Facing The Storm” by David Connel. Location: Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, Montana.

I’ve been to the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center several times,” explains Connel. “On this particular snowy winter day, the weather kept getting worse and worse until it reached blizzard conditions. Everyone, including the staff, all left or found shelter. I hung around in the storm hoping for a good dramatic picture depicting the harsh conditions. As the visibility started to really deteriorate, this lone wolf came out and stood facing into the wind and snow. This was the image I was waiting for.”

Exposure: 1/320 sec., f/6.3, ISO 125, 200mm.
