Guest Feature - Ben Hall
I took this image whilst on a four-week tour of Patagonia. During the trip I spent several days exploring Torres Del Paine, a large national park in Chile. It is a wild, hostile environment and a place of extreme beauty. For much of the time I was searching for Andean condors and came across this Patagonian fox by complete accident. It isn't often that I'm able to get close enough to my subject to use a wild angle lens, but this animal was so approachable I was able to shoot with a 17-40mm lens. I lay flat on the floor and shuffled towards the fox until it was just a meter or so away. I zoomed out to 17mm in order to include as much as of the surrounding mountains as possible, showing the relationship between the animal and its foreboding and awesome environment.
