European lynx

About ten years ago I encountered this European lynx (Lynx lynx). The lynx was walking toward me and stops when I sat down. I managed to take four pictures and this is my favorite.

I used film and if I remember correctly, I used Provia 400 and a Minolta Dynax 7 and a 80-200/2,8 telephoto zoom.

A photographer that had a really close encounter to a lynx is Terje HellesøThis picture is fantastic. Terje photographed the lynx with a 17mm fisheye!

UPDATED – Terje Hellesø has admitted cheating!

    1. Yes, I have heard and read about it. Terje, who preached that manipulation in photoshop was a bad thing!
