This is a wicked cool photo. I love the intensity of the moment, the eye, the teeth ,and the speed. Great clarity, the streaming fur, the air bubbles but for me I think it's the whiskers that make this photo. This is Brian Skerry Good. Nice job Steven.
P.S. A few days ago, you had a photo of horses on a hill, and some thought the dog in the photo didn't belong. I just wanted to say, to those who care, that that was a border collie. If it weren't for that dog it is unlikely those horses would have been in that tight group on the hill. I thought the dog completed that photo. Just my opinion.
@Barney Blasterson I didn't know it was a border collie, although that makes sense, I think the dog completed the photograph beautifully.
@Barney Blasterson must agree about the dog, a good dog is worth a 100 people when it comes to handling large animals, they are part of the family.
