Arctic Wolf

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The autumn leaves are wrapping up now,and some wind and rain has caused many to fall.There are still many to be viewed and certain varieties of trees hold their leaves longer.But sadly the peak is over and soon the branches will be bare.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Wolf,

I've always loved Robert Frost and I love this wolf as well. A marvelous 3-D effect - the wolf is so removed from the backround ready to jump off the monitor. The expression on his face and the position of his body are fantastic. The white fur with the tans and greys are beautiful. Fine details of from nose to tail. Lovely autumn background but the wolf is the scene stealer.


Your powerful image goes very well with Frosts powerful words...and you can hear them said by him aloud in audio here.. Click to hear Robert Frost.

Your image with the words is very moving..I am doing a video and I used this words of his in it..and now if you could attach to me the image I will also include it, as it is certainly worthy of the high quality which you can do...

Hi Wolf,

A truly magic moment captured, wonderful composition, excellent detail and framing; perfect poem for a perfect shot, t.f.s

Cheers Rickk :)

This is wonderful Mr. Wolf Power. I love the white wolf against that gorgeous background. Beautiful work and nice note. Fall just doesn't last long enough.

Hi Wolf,
You know by now how I feel about your superb wolf images, so here is a poem for you hope you like it.

by 3 Hawks

Drums pound as gourd rattles shake in rhythm
with the joyous heart of Earth Mother
Spirits of Earth and Sky loudly rejoice
at birthing of new Wolf pups

Tiny new lives beginning in innocence
their eyes closed to what might be
Gently, as the caress of a Butterfly
Wind Spirits stroke their fur

Sleeping pups, dreaming dreams
of ancestors roaming free
Prairies, mountains, valleys, and streams
were once a home they shared with all

Awaken young pups, and grow strong
for yours is not the path of your ancestors
No longer will you roam wild and free
upon this land that was once theirs

For generations you kept balance among creation
and of close family you lead the way
With stealthy swiftness you move
and protect your family as no other

You are great teachers among earth relations
yet many lies have been spoken of you
Each of you is a gift to all that is
yet many two leggeds would not agree

They would destroy all of you and your young
if only they could secretly find you
Wolf, you live in harmony with our Earth Mother
while two leggeds live in selfish greed

You only take that which you need
but humans would take all they can get
You are strong of mind and heart
while two leggeds are weak and ignorant of your way

You are accused of that which you do not do
but such is the way of the human
Yet, there are few two leggeds left
who fight for you and your own

These are the ones who thrill at the sound of your voice
and whose heart longs to see you if only for a moment
Grow strong young wolves
and pray that the ignorant attain wisdom

With sage, sweetgrass, and cedar,
Native people will honor their Wolf cousins
They know of your strong medicine
and the gifts a Great Spirit has given you

Remember your ancestors and all they once had
while giving thanks to those who would fight for you
Walk in beauty upon the soft face of Earth Mother
and perhaps you will once again roam free

Hey Wolfie, amazing capture....this one just jumps right out of the picture.The contrast is striking ...the rich colours of autumn works as a fantastic BG and superb Dof.The subject is in sharp focus and the eye contact makes it look more effective.
TFS and cheer
P.S:Love to add this to my "unforgettable" theme

Hi Wolf,
Outstanding shot of this Artic Wolf and I like the natural forest setting. Lovely colours and details and the image is tack sharp. The calm pose is captured well with perfect light and exposure levels. Very pleasing to the eyes. Excellent DOF, POV and composition.

Wowww... what a perfection Wolf? This shot confirm me that why I loved your shots indeed. I enjoy photos taken of something the photographer is passionate about - in this case wolf! This all looks very natural and you were lucky to have had eye contact! I love the colours in both the wolf and its autumnal surrounding, and the depth of field is excellent.
Thanks lot, lot, lot for this perfect tribute to me and you could be sure that I am not liked this dedication! I loved it and honoured.
Keep shooting and sharing my friend!
Have a great day!


It is a nice background for this wolf to be taken in.
Almost as if this wolf could be a pet with its docile stare.
Good capture.

Hello Wolf, superb shot of arctic wolf with nice details, warm colours and wonderful composition. Also great dedication.
TFS and regards,

Hi Wolf,

I like the composition, colours and eye contact in this image. Good detail on the fur. The angle of the ground behind the wolf and the slightly OOF background gives a dynamic type of movement which fits in well with your notes. One wonders what type of life the other roads would have produced.



Hi Wolf,

Am I addressing the author or the picture? well its beautifully composed and the contrast back ground keeps the picture stand out. Well done.TFS.

Hello you,
It reminds me of some other shots taken in autumnal times and showing one of your favourite animals, which unfortunately disappeared from my favourites.. I really like the poem you added. In my past I had an American boyfriend who loved Robert Frost poems and made me know his marvellous poetry.

Hello Wolf, excellent shot of this beauty with nice composition. Perfect dedication too. TFS.

Hello Wolf,
Excellent photo in perfect sharpness and details. Splendid colours with a very beautiful autumn BG. Superb composition and pose.
Great dedication.

Hi Wolf,

The artic wolf seem to be on alert. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the animal. The blur background brings out the main subject. The light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.


amazing wolf, TFS Ori

Hi Wolf,

Nice capture. You did get a nice fall landscape here, which isn't that difficult. But even better, you improved it with the white wolf, and that a lot more difficult.
Overall exposure is pretty good, composition well balanced, and I love the sideway view of the wolf staring at the observer.
Great shot and TFS.

Hi Wolf

Another very beautiful capture from you!
I really like the exceptional natural contrast here between the white wolf and the colorful forest in the BG. This really sets your subject even better apart, even from the thumbnail.
The details are impeccable, the DOF and exposure are spot-on and the composition is spot-on - with the subject positioned off-centered in the scene.
Lovely work!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Wolf
Beautiful! Great autumn colors. I like the DOF. also good exposure on white. Magical photo - and a poem as a perfect note to this shot ;-)
Best wishes

Yes, the branches will be bare and that fantastic period of the year will be back in a year... well, it's my favourite time and I have to say that your picture, here, is a favourite too. This white wolf in front of those fantastic trees is amazing. Thank you wolf.
