dutch photographer Roeselien Raimond isn’t afraid to brave the elements to get her “perfect shot”. Her love of wildlife, especially foxes, inspires her to take her camera on various outdoor excursions, resulting in some incredible photos. His latest series captures red foxes as they are covered in snow.
Although she lives in an urban setting, Raimond often ventures into nature to find her animal subjects. It means having to stay in one place for long periods of time, usually in discomfort. “It was -12°C (10.4°F) when I photographed these foxes, which is exceptionally cold here,” Raimond tells My Modern Met. “I was lying in a fierce snowstorm and was completely absorbed in the moment. It wasn’t until nightfall that I realized how hungry and hypothermic I was. However, the results of her trials are worth it, as she manages to take pictures of foxes up close and from different angles.
The fox subjects in this series seem quite at home in the snowstorm. In many images, the fox has its eyes closed as snowflakes cover its thick fur; and in others it lies in layers of snow. “I have now been studying fox behavior for over a decade and have had the opportunity to meet many foxes,” Raimond continues. “I could never have imagined that a wild predator could have such a gentle temperament. They are also very intelligent animals with a complex nature, which makes them interesting to follow.
