Shoot the Wild Monthly Winner September

October 13, 2018

This picture of a walrus mother with her young on a floating ice block has been awarded monthly winner September 2018 in the International Photo Competition Shoot the Wild



The picture has been shot the 28th of August, during the Svalbard Summer Expedition. It was shot from a Zodiac, allowing a low angle shot, but the composition was difficult, as the Zodiac never stands still. 2 other shots that I have submitted to the same competitions became monthly finalists. When I took the pictures I felt it was a very special meeting. I was surprised to feel the affection that mother showed to her young; I wanted absolutely to include enough of the floating ice block. I used my Canon EOS 1 Dx-Mk2, zoomed at 330 mm, f/6.3;1/2500s;ISO 800
