Photo by Harry R. Matthews
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, F8, 1/80, ISO 200, 35mm
You wouldn’t think a Squirrel in front of a small waterfall stream would look so interesting. In this image the Squirrel is perfectly placed to create a rather sweet touch of humour, as if Harry was emphasising the thirst of the animal.
The delightful thing about this image is not only the placement of the animal and it’s object of desire but how it sits upon the rock patiently, as if waiting for the opportune moment to take advantage of the water. The placement almost guarantees the photo’s story.
The light is soft and works to enhance the colour of the environment. The colours work well together in this light. The light has a blue tint to it, and if Harry chose, he could use the levels feature and simply warm up the image a tad.
A great job, well done Harry.
