源之原味

Photograph by @florianschulzvisuals // Being in the presence of wolves gives me such a special feeling. They are incredibly smart animals and give the landscape another dimension of wildness. There is little chance to sneak up to a wolf. In order to get good images, one has to spend the time, win their trust and let them come to you. If one were to succeed to quietly come close, they become aware of your presence sooner or later, set off a few short barks and it is the last you have seen of them. For that very reason, it makes sense to let the animals learn that you are part of the landscape and not a threat to them. This takes patience and time. (swipe left)
These beautiful prints were left by a full-grown wolf in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia, Canada. It is so much fun to follow such tracks on a beach because you know that the wolf has just passed along the very same spot you are standing on. Soon the high tide will wash the tracks away again. I used a strong wide-angle lens to show the tracks part of the landscape. Even though these are not human footprints, this image makes me think of the National Parks slogan: “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.” What is so special about the Great Bear Rainforest? There are no permanent tracks by humans – like roads leading into it. Access is by boat only. We sailed there with our little 27 ft trimaran. Please follow me @florianschulzvisuals to see more images wild landscapes and the wildlife that roams there! #wilderness #wolf #greatbearrainforest #britishcolumbia #wildlifephotography #sailing #journey #canada
