Ed­win Sahlin, Swe­den

Fi­nal­ist, 15 to 17 Years

I was on a ski­ing hol­i­day with my fam­ily in north­ern Swe­den, and when­ever we stopped for lunch I would pho­to­graph the birds that gath­ered look­ing for scraps. On this oc­ca­sion, I dug a pit in the snow deep enough to climb into, scat­tered tit­bits of food around the edge and waited. Some Siberian jays flew right over me, en­abling me to pho­to­graph them from below. Nikon D7000, Nikon AF-S 35mm f/1.8G, 1/2000 sec, f/7.1, ISO320
