Interesting Photo of the Day: Majestic Wolfdog

Photographing a majestic animal in golden light is a dream come true for any wildlife photographer. But not many get an opportunity to fulfill this dream in their lifetime. For photographer Thomas Bakke, however, things happened quite by chance. He was camping up in the mountains of Western Norway with his wife and two wolfdogs when he saw this moment and reached for his camera:

If you’re wondering what camera settings he used for this image, here they are:

Aperture: f/4, Shutter Speed: 1/400 of a second, ISO: 100. The photographer used a Canon EOS 6D.

Sometimes Mother Nature sets up a moment on a whim, lights it with the most beautiful light, and then looks around for a photographer to capture it. In this case, Bakke was that photographer. How else would you explain this image?

    Well edited, but I find the colours too much.
    The dog and the foreground part of the rock
    would have been close to black on the raw file.

    I object to the question more than the cute image.
