Bruno D'Amicis - Wild brand


Allow me here a rather straightforward shot of one of the most amazing things to be still found in Nature: the pug mark an adult large male Brown bear left on the bark of a Spruce tree. For other bears a warning to stay out his territory and for me the sign that I am entering the wilderness.

    I fully understand what you want to express with this image. I found this marks in the north here and there myself. It's a strong feeling: I think respect is the right word.
