Wild Shadow




This photo was taken at dawn last September in a French forest. It was very dark and I could only perceive shadows moving around. A silhouette came towards me, certainly out of curiosity. It was a really daunting moment to see this wild shade getting closer. This is one of my favorite photos. I am very glad that it is part of the Nikon selection.
This photo is entitled "Wild Shadow". The scene took place last September. I was impatient to go to the forest to catch a glimpse of deers during the rutting season. Before dawn, I reached the forest and kept walking in search of what I was searching for. And then, here he was. The King of the forest. It was such a magical moment. The place was very dark and as my DSLR (Nikon D80) could not cope with high ISO, I decided to use the back-light in my favor.
