Photo Of The Month • Win A VIP Membership
[post-views]

Mark Medcalf from the United Kingdom

Iceland has always fascinated me both the landscape and the abundance of wildlife there. I visited to specifically locate and photograph the Arctic Fox. I traveled to the West Fjords in the North-West areas of Iceland during the Summer which allowed for nearly 24 hour daylight. We set up camp along one particular fjord where the foxes had been seen recently. We did not have to wait long until the foxes found us.
This particular image was taken around 2 in the morning, hence the light had dropped but still good enough to take pictures. The fox hunted along the shoreline each day, looking for birds and fish, then he would walk back to his den to feed the young cubs. I waited lying low on the rocks for it to visit. In my binoculars I could see it walking towards me in the distance and could see it had caught something in its mouth. As it got closer I could make out it was a fish. I was happy that the family of foxes would have a decent meal that day.
