The closeup of the wolves eyes was tricky to get. I missed it multiple times as they’d often look the other way, blink, or move faster than I could capture the photo. They do have really striking eyes and despite it not being a head on shot, I still love how clear they turned out.
I had some downtime and decided to go through my backlog of photos. I was looking through photos from my trip to the Lakota Wolf Preserve and found a bunch of pictures that I was able to process using some of the new tools I’ve added to my collection.

Surprisingly, this was taken in Winter, but I cannot remember which part of Turkey. I have to assume it was taken near Gallipoli as it’s near the...
