I was down at the waterfront yesterday morning trying to catch a sunrise with the thought being that the cold fog (minus 18C with a minus 27c wind chill during this!!) that hangs over the lake this time of day might make a good subject for the backlight assignment. To make a long story short along came a fox waaaaayy out on the ice. Took the camera off the tripod and fired away. Kinda made my day. Wish I had a little more zoom to better catch the moment!! Hope you enjoy.

That image # 2 is a killer. Wonderful. Even though one can hardly make out the fox (could be a coyote or other dog for that matter), the lighthouse on the left counterbalances nicely. Very nice shot, well worth enduring the cold!

#2 is my favourite as well; the starkness of the barren ice is wayyy cool. You might want to try a "crop-zoom". If you crop image #2 down to a 1024 pixel wide image then things in the image will get about 4 times larger since your original is 5148 pixels wide. Note that you are throwing away a lot of pixels but you might find a bit more detail in that canine.

Love the colour tones in that 1st one Aub. It really tells a story at the length you shot, as in the hardships of survival for some creatures, and yet so beautiful are the surroundings.

I agree.

Thank you for the nice comments Matt, Iggy,Hillbillygirl and Bambi. Much appreciated.:)
Here are a couple more without zoom for the overall view and a larger crop of the critter. He actually did find something out there. He must have been here previously.

Thanks edG. It was a bit cool at the time but truth be known it has not been too bad up here this winter...so far.
