Meeting a fox in the snow
Seattle Times reader Leslie Otto's photo of a fox on a snowy Thanksgiving Day in Mount Rainier National Park.
Photographer: Leslie Otto, Bellevue
Photo taken: Nov. 24, Mount Rainier National Park
Photographer's description: "Instead of cooking a feast on Thanksgiving, my family and I celebrated by going snowshoeing. This Cascade red fox was on the side of the road near Narada Falls. Camera: Rebel X3i."
Expert says: "This is a beautiful image to be proud of. The short depth of field (of focus) cleans up the background nicely. The composition with the fox in the right third looking toward the negative space is well done. The slower shutter speed allows the snow to streak as the flakes fall."
