Arctic Wolf for Rick Price

Rick posted such a beautiful critique recently for one of my autumn wolf shots.I want him to know I think he is an amazing natural wildlife photographer,and he never ceases to amaze me with his depictions of wildlife in western Canada.There is a poem by one of my favourite poets ,Robert Frost that sums up how I feel.

A Time to Talk
Robert Frost

When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don't stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven't hoed,
And shout from where I am, 'What is it?'
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.

Thanks friends for dropping by for a friendly visit.

Hi W.P.

I'm sure Rick will love this. I loved his recent gray wolf post also. This shot is super with the backdrop of autumn color. Exposure and sharpness on this very white arctic wolf looks perfect. This wolf looks happy and healthy.

Hi Mister Wolf,
This is a superb portrait and nice dedication to our dear friend. You managed exposure very well and details and lightning are beautiful! Have a good weekend!

Hi Wolf,

A wonderful dedication to Rick - who is not only a fine photographer of nature but a wonderful person. I'm sure he will love this wolf. A marvelous close-up of this beautiful animal. I can hear him panting!! His face and coat are beautiful with good details and lovely colors and shadings. There's a good reason your screenname is Wolfpower.

Great capture. I love the contrast between the background and the wolf. There are a couple of hot spots on the wolfs fur but still works in this shot. Very beautiful shot.

Oh yes, a great portrait! Congrats Wolf on the good tight crop and the perfect background! Well done,


The fall colors makes for a beautiful backdrop of this canid the white pelage against the warm colors certainly makes this wolf stand out with pleasing results.

You are a special photographer as you are a special person too, with spirituality and kindness in your heart. I am sure Rick will be touched a lot by this note of yours, monsieur Wolf. And this wolf sure is an amazing animal, what a beautiful presence, we feel its strenghth of character and there is something in the picture that is very reassuring in him. Thank you!

Hello Wolf,
Your words bring me great joy and honor, to be thought of as your words say carries a great deal of weight because of the source of these kind words YOU. You and I, I feel have a great deal in common though we live in opposite ends of this great country of ours. We share a passion for wolves, and all Gods creatures and attempting to show the beauty that we have had bestowed upon us through our photography. I am honored to call you a friend, thank you for this wonderful dedication RF Wolf.

Hi Wolf,

A nice close-up image of the artic wolf, the point of view is showing the details and colors of the animal. The photo is clear and precise. The colors are enhanced by the quality of the light.
