Plump fox & frosty morning

The last day of snow before all this beauty has melted down. 
A nice rural morning trip with animal and landscape pictures.

After a small chase
 I managed to get a nice shot of a fox that was pretty plump and very fluffy compared to other specimens I saw recently. 

But first, here is sunrise sky shot with polarazing filter.


Nikon D600, nikkor 16-35mm f4, at f11, 1/2 sec., ISO100, tripod.

That morning the temperature dropped below -12°C in a rural area. Now just a few days before th New Year it's +6°...

On this forest road I had a chance to test new winter tires and they were good indeed. :)

A wild Passat is hiding in the woods. :)

And here goes the fox. It was hunting while I was trying to approach it silently. And when I was in the right position it looked directly at me.
