Napoleon's army in retreat from Russia.
Thank you very much! I try to make my site in English (put language switch). In the meantime, you can use Google translator - at least the approximate meaning of the text. Good luck!
This is absolutely fantastic !! One of the best (if not the best) Winter shot I have seen this year..... Love it !!
Thank you Alexander Stepaneko for sharing these photos and for nat geo for not only highlighting it in this section but evolving the your shot feature with LONG LENS! Amazing photographs of alexander that sum up a world of emotions but also radiate resiliance and real character and hope woven in. i wish i could read russian to have a bit more background when linking into the website .
I think a picture such as this can only be appreciated in black and white. The sheer magnitude of the frozen landscape and vast number of reindeer is amazing.
I don't think that I have ever seen so many reindeer in one photo before. Very nice capture. I do love black and white though.
"Way ahead of the rest" What a great black and white photograph,that really takes one 'into'it. As always a big thanks to the man behind the shot. Theres a lot to be said for not having color in scenes like this one bringing impact to to the eye. So thank you a lot. j.e.s.
I saw your picture within the hour you posted it. What a magical moment this must have been for you back in '96. thanks for sharing this!
I love this photo; Its natural contrast of grey scale and the faith and anticipation captured in the herd'eyes and folowing.
I imagine you were leading them with hay on the sledge. Beautiful photo. Yesterday was 24 degrees below zero and my poor horses looked this miserable even though they had blankets on.
