A Brown Bear image taken as the sun was rising and the mist was collecting on a pond.
Even the cobwebs in the trees were illuminated as the bear walked through and back into the forest...
Thanks for looking ,
Lee

PS - Big thanks to Phillip for the GEA again Smile it's really appreciated.

Great to see the bear in such a natural environment, but the light, tones and atmosphere created by the lurking mist make this an exceptional nature shot for me.

Beautifully atmospheric Lee, (I never had a cold night when I was there, but dawns were exciting light !) Have a Very Merry Christmas and New Year. Are you planning anymore wildlife adventures ?
