hunter vs hunter

A stunning image of a nomadic hunter on the ice has been awarded the POTW accolade this week. 

The image, titled 'Hunter vs Hunter' by BURNBLUE was chosen be the staff here at ePHOTOzine to win the accolade and here's why we thought it deserved to win: 

This is a stunning capture of a lifestyle that unfortunately is becoming rarer and rarer these days. The nomad uses the eagle to hunt wolves in order to survive, and this image provides a rare insight into the life of these people.

The image has been composed well and gives an insight into the vastness of the landscape, with the mountains in the background. It's a captivating picture that shows how in sync with wildlife and animals you have to be to be able to survive in this harsh land. It's a picture that you can imagine will last through the generations and allow people a snapshot of a culture that's so different to ours in the west.

POTW winners currently get their hands on a 32GB MicroSDHC card from Samsung. See all the images that have been awarded the accolade in the Photo of the Week gallery.
