Grey Wolf

This is my 1000th posting on this site. It took me almost 8 years to arrive at this number...wasn't very fast. I wanted to thank all TN-members for all their interesting contributions and especially those who write good notes and have taken the time to have a look to other pictures.

I didn't know which subject to choose at this occasion. At this moment no snow, no insects around, not ideal for good nature shots. I have chosen the wolf, because it is one of our most interesting wild animals in Europe, even if this shot has been taken in a parc.
But somehow these animals are so fascinating.

First of all, hearty congratulations on reaching the landmark of 1000 pictures on TN, Anne! On an average, you posted 125 pictures every year and each of them was a gem of a contribution to this site. It is members like you who have added great value to TN. It has been a pleasure to see your work in the last 7-8 years.
The picture of a Wolf as your 1000th is just perfect. The animal looks happy and confident in the snowy surroundings of the park where you shot it.
We have signs of spring here in India though weather in the northern parts where I live is still cold.
Warm regards.

Hello Anne,

Hope life is good in 2014. Congratulation on this majestic 1000th post, what a contribution!It is because of people like that we have such a thriving community here where we all live like friends.A blessing indeed.
Grey Wolf like all of its species, a graceful predator.Its majesty and the imposing nature it possesses is matchless in the wild. You have captured it while it was heading somewhere, great pose indeed.
Thanks a lot for sharing, take care,

warm regards/Abid

Apparently I have precognitive powers ... ha ha ha
Just seems to anticipate the occurrence of one of your works ; Anne . Yesterday while writing some thought toward criticism have not seen the nick " anel " show up here , and I would forget to write a mail to know it was your life when :WHAM! A powerful gray wolf manifests .
As a fierce praetorian guard for my friend Anne Gattlen ... is that the beautiful photograph of the legendary predator , was honored to No. 1000 posted by the "Lady of the Butterflies " (or is it now a kind of modern Little Red Riding Hood ? ? :) )

A big hug , friend.

PS: In the last review I received from Joydeb Chaudhury , I completed my first 1000 points, is a coincidence but small scale ! ha ha ha ! Your 1000 photos and 73 ... I 'm just a little ant ...
But anyway I festejaré my first 1000 points with a photograph that I will devote all (and obviously I include estimated Anne ) .

Ciao Anne, great capture of superb creature, beautiful ambientation, fine details, wobderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Anne, Congratulations on your 1,000th. post!!
You can never go wrong with an image of a wolf, they have been the subjects of folklore for ages. They are loved by some and hated by others, yet they still survive freely in some of the most remote areas in the world.
They are the essence of a free wild spirit which cannot be tamed and yes.... they are incredibly beautiful creatures. You have photographed this magnificent specimen perfectly in a wonderful pose while showing it's unique features off in fine detail. Wolves come in an array of colorful coats, from pure white to black and all mixtures in between. Great choice for your special 1,000th. post!! Well done!!

Bonjour Anne

D'abord félicitations pour ta 1000e photos dans TN !
Même si ce loup est en semi-captivité, le moment est superbe
et j'aimerais vivre un moment pareil et pouvoir photographier,
excellent focus, netteté et détails du loup, la neige au sol
n'étant pas trop donne de l'ambiance à la photo, TFS

À un peu plus que 1 heure de Montréal, il y a un parc
avec des animaux sauvages en semi-captivité dans la nature,
dont le loup, mais je ne suis jamais allé encore, j'espère un jour y aller.

Ciao Anne. Details and DOF impressive agains the perspective like BG. Beautiful colours. Best compliments for the 1000th and TFS!


Bonsoir Anne,
Félicitations pour la performance, et pour cette splendide publication.
Très belle attitude du sujet saisie dans une belle lumière et sous une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Liebe Anne,
das Foto mit der Zahl Eintausend - Gratulation!
1000 Beiträge in knapp acht Jahren - "wasn't very fast"? Das bedeutet doch kontinuierlich mehr als 120 Beiträge pro Jahr, somit also gut jeden dritten Tag ein neues Posting. Finde ich überaus fleißig und konsequent. Bewundere dies ebenso wie das hohe fotografisch-künstlerische Niveau all Deiner Beiträge, die subtile Note Deines ganz persönlichen Stils, Deine scharfe Beobachtung, die originellen Zugänge, die gründlichen naturgeschichtlichen Recherchen, die ungezählten Worte aufmerksamer Anteilnahme und Anerkennung für Deine Fotografen-KollegInnen auf TN.
Bleibt also noch anzumerken, dass auch dieser Berner Canis lupus, ganz in Deinem gewohnten Stil der Wahrheit der Recherche verpflichtet und in bewährt präziser Weise mit feinen leisen Tönen subtil eingefangen, einen ausgeprägten Charakter wiedergibt: den des gefangenen Wildtieres, dem trotz des goßzügig bemessenen Geheges der freie Auslauf vor der Nase fehlt. So wie im Grunde genommen uns allen, was uns Deinen Wolf noch näher rückt.
Mit Dank und Gratulation!
Sehr herzlich grüsst aus Wien,
