Bruno D'Amicis - Chamois essence
Well, not so much to say. You all know I love (or, better, I am obsessed by) Apennine chamois. This is one of my favourite images taken so far of this marvellous species. The sun was setting behind a mountain and I moved to place the animal exactly in the line with the sun. When the last rays hit it, I deliberately underexposed of 3 stops to obtain this pitch black image. The round shapes are reflections on a dwarf pine.
