Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Distance

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Distance prompt.

As a nature and landscape photographer I have been social distancing for decades. I started thinking about some of the locations in Saskatchewan where there wasn’t another human being for miles. Especially in winter when some farmers move into town, just because there’s a farm 5 miles away doesn’t mean there’s anyone living there. For some of these photos I was miles from the nearest road.

I just found this in the spam folder for some reason. It’s maybe strange but I never worry about getting close to skunks. As long as they don’t feel threatened you’re fine. Sometimes I will talk to them so they know I’m there as their eyesight is poor. I had to tell one off for being in the yard when I was leaving for work last summer.

I’m not sure if the skunk is looking at me or not. They have very poor eyesight and I didn’t want to scare it and make it feel threatened so I was making some noise so it knew I was there.
