50 Shades Of White With A Touch Of Red: New Winter Foxes By Roeselien Raimond

Roeselien Raimond, a Dutch nature photographer who takes especially warm and beautiful pictures of wild red foxes, shared some exclusive new winter fox photos with Bored Panda and talked to us about her work.

Raimond (whom we’ve written about and spoken with before here) said that snow can be rare where she lives, making these exclusive snowy fox photos a real treat! “While the whole world is being absorbed in blankness and the sound of my shutter is muffled by the steadily falling snow, a red fox suddenly appears on stage. She embellishes my white canvas so perfectly. Never had I been happier with a little touch of red in my colour palette,” the artist and photographer told us.

For a bit of red in your snow-white winter palette, check out her photos below, along with some more of her interviews with Bored Panda!

While the whole world is being absorbed in blankness and the sound of my shutter is muffled by the steadily falling snow, a red fox suddenly appears on stage,” Raimond told Bored Panda.

“Foxes, along with cats, are my favorite animals. Their depth and uniqueness appeal to me: Every fox is an individual character. Some are very elusive, while others can be quite cheeky. Some are very spontaneous and playful and some are just plain boring ;)”

The one thing they all have in common is their unpredictability: With a fox, you never know what they are up to. Will they be hunting, sleeping, swimming… will they even be there at all? That’s exactly what continuously challenges me to immerse myself in their intriguing doings

Raimond told Bored Panda that all the foxes she photographs are wild. “Foxes have always thought to be nocturnal and very shy animals. And indeed they often are. Not by nature, but because we gave them a reason to be, by hunting them

Once foxes are no longer hunted, they will be more diurnal and some will even come close to people. In the area I’m visiting, hunting isn’t allowed and dogs, cyclists and cars are prohibited. Thus, there is no threat for them at all and some foxes lose their elusiveness.”

The last thing that interests me is a fox that sees me as a walking food dispenser. I’m interested in witnessing and capturing natural behaviour. Therefore, I need to make myself almost ‘invisible’ and a completely uninteresting part of the environment, waiting and hoping to witness that special fox moment…

It was an extremely harsh winter day with heavy snow fall…,” Raimond told Bored Panda about her favorite photo, above. “I could hardly see, let alone take a decent picture. And then this fox showed up. She looked so calm and at ease and just the sight of this magical creature made me forget about all inconveniences and immediately brought some warmth back in my body.

It’s hard – if not impossible- to make a living out of nature photography. My photos are sold as stock and fine art and are published in many international magazines, but nowadays photographers need to be really creative to generate money from their photographs. Giving workshops (photography or post processing) is a more remunerative and reliable way to earn some money.

Creativity, nature and people have always been the most important aspects of my life and I’m always trying to find a perfect combination. As long as I can be creative, feel the grass under my feet and smell the fresh air and preferably share this with some pleasant company, I’m fine :P“ We’d like to thank Roeselien Raimond for providing Bored Panda with some exclusive photos and for talking about her work with us. Thank you!

I've "hosted" grey foxes and their cubes for years. They slowly became more friendly, but I never tried to tame them: love their freedom!
