Fox on white by mennodekker

Here is a shot of a fox I took in Hokkaido Japan. Every time I see photo’s of this particular fox it reminds me of one best photographing days I have experienced so far. We had stellar sea eagles and orca’s for breakfast and foxes in all kind of snow situations in the afternoon. We got the location where the fox should be from another photographer, who sent a photo of a green storage building in the middle of nowhere and the coordinates for gps. We showed them to the taxi driver, who looked at us if we were absolutely insane to go there, but he drove to the location, we found the building and started walking. Just 5 minutes later 2 foxes appeared in a place full of snow. Sometimes you just have to be very lucky I guess……

Marching through the snow by mennodekker

Here is another shot I took during our visit to Hokkaido last winter. We met this fox on a completely desolated strip of land, where he and his partner in crime were living. The fox smelt us and approached us carefully and that is when I took this shot. At the same time a snowstorm was starting.

Yesterday I saw the documentary about Hokkaido on the BBC, and I went through the archives and found this one. For sure I want to go back there again. !!!
