[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Rupicapra rupicapra near Kasprowy Wierch.
We have spent three days in Zakopane between 7th and 9th of December(Zakopane is known as a capital of Polish mountains). There were very cold - in the mountain between -15 and -20C degrees. But apart from cold it was beautiful. First snow, beautiful views, not many people.
On Friday we had 10 hours trek: started from Siwa Polana, went through Polana Chocholowska, Grzes (1653m), Rakon (1879m), Wolowiec (2064m). The way back, the same. We had to use all the winter equipment.
On Saturday we were only on Kasprowy Wierch (1987m) using cable car.
On Sunday we started from Krupowki in Zakopane, went near Wielka Krokiew, Dolina Bialego, Sarnia Skala (1377m), Dolina Strazyska, Dolina ku Dziurze and again Zakopane.

Hallo Maciek
A spectacular image of this animal all by its lonesome in the snow. I like the visible sight of the trail it has left behind. I love scenes like these as they are unique. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Ciao Maciek, lovely composition with rubicapra in the snow, excellent perspective, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Maciej
this is simple but great compo, one problem is the color of snow which, if I remember well is white. Camera exposition will try to give a mid-grey tone to the whole image, so in white snow landscape you have to over expose by 1 or 2 IL to keep the Nature as it is
I tried a ws, maybe you like it
