It’s definitely the year for snow leopard photos. This photograph entitled “Endangered Beauty”, by acclaimed Fine Art Photographer Stephen W. Oachs, has won the National Geographic Viewer’s Choice Award for 2008. A beautiful photo, with the animal staring straight at us, he has captured the grace and strength of the endangered snow leopard. The black and white photo accentuates the cold landscape and the way the snow leopard merges into it.
Photographer Stephen W. Oachs’ winning photograph is of a snow leopard weaving through the snow on a private reserve in Montana, USA .
