Spirit of the Blizzard by deskridge Spirit of the Blizzard by deskridge
A white wolf stands on dark rocks.  This predator of the North American wilderness gazes at you. A blizzard has rolled in and  snow whips out of the dark night sky.  It's as if the animal has summoned the winter storm out of the arctic.  It is the wind that howls or are more wolves near by.

White Wolves, also known as arctic wolves or Melville Island wolves are a subspecies of gray wolf that live in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. They are a bit smaller than the typical gray wolf. 

I've created many images with wolves and even several featuring white ones, but I think this is my best image so far to feature a white wolf.  Also, a bit unusual for me, this is one of my rare night scenes.  However, I didn't want it too dark, so I gave the impression that there is light in the background as if there is some human settlement reflecting light off the low clouds.

Thanks for looking!

Once again, I am gobsmacked by your employing of the different shades of white, gray, and slate on the Arctic wolf, resulting in a full, not a flat, figure. Wondrous!

This is really good. Was disappointed that the image size was too small to use as a desktop background.

Beautiful picture mate. Wolves and huskies are my favorite animals, so this one really touches close to home :-)

Wow!!!  It looks like he's near a highway!  *grins  that would be a really awesome thing to see on the way home: a white wolf in a white snowstorm standing on a snow covered rock watching you go by. You might not believe you saw it!

I agree!  Simply beautiful.  I also like the facts in the description.  Admire a beautiful picture AND learn a little about wolves, what more could you ask?

Always loved your work.  I wonder if there is a way to get frost flakes to look right on white fur.
