A Splash of Red Against White Snow: Photographs of Wild Foxes in Winter
Foxes were once thought to be nocturnal by nature, but the truth is those living near humans only stay hidden during the day out of fear. Dutch artist, painter and nature photographer Roeselien Raimond captures these beautiful creatures in their natural habitat, where they feel free to hunt and play in broad daylight.
As one of Raimond’s favorite animals, it’s no surprise that foxes are the subject of many of her amazing photographs. Her images showcase the gorgeous and often spontaneous wild animals in the snow, behaving without fear of humans. The lively red and orange splashes against the peaceful white background provide a nice antidote to the dreariness of winter. You feel as though you are there, in that quiet landscape, witnessing these majestic creatures with your own eyes.
In an interview, Raimond tells Bored Panda:
While the whole world is being absorbed in blankness and the sound of my shutter is muffled by the steadily falling snow, a red fox suddenly appears on stage. She embellishes my white canvas so perfectly. Never had I been happier with a little touch of red in my colour palette.
