Capture of the Day: Valentina Brancaforte

I love sharing this image today, on Earth Day, of a wolf taken by Italian photographer Valentina Brancaforte during her winter 2017 trip to Norway’s Lofoten archipelago Polar Park Arctic Wildlife Center during a workshop with photographer and instructor Luca Bracali.

The beautiful photo was also featured by National Geographic:

I was lucky enough to meet Valentina during a stop in Rome in March. Thank you for your friendship, congratulations on your successes and much appreciation for you and your talent, Valentina!

Here’s a great clip showing the cascading positive impacts when wolves were reintroduced in the U.S., bringing balance back to ecosystems.

Valentina is also a brilliant portrait artist. See more of her work here:
