The thermometer was reading 12 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill at -18F last Saturday and, of course, I choose to go to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York. The zoo is running their annual winter photography contest with free admission for people who show a coupon and their camera. I figured since it was a typical central New York winter’s day, it was a good day to get winter photos at the zoo.
I took over 300 photos during the day but can only submit 2 for the contest. After culling out the days take, I looked at what was left and the Red Fox (above) and Caribou (below) photos kept catching my eye. Though both needed cropping to tell the story I wanted to convey, I think both photos show what winter life is like for these animals at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
