    “Arh-woooooo…” I howl, echoing a call from deep within the forest on the other side of Maligne Lake. In return, a chorus of ‘Arh-wooo … arh-wooOO…’ shatters any possibility of the signal being human. It’s a pack of wolves, calling to each other as the light begins to fade under the waxing gibbous moon above Jasper National Park. These are the wild spaces that shape who we are. Here, you may be short of breath, but never short on your sense of awe.

    This is so beautiful Nitish. I agree with Your Shot photographer Birgith Norelli who commented, "It's a wonderful picture uplifted by a wonderful text. I can hear the paddle dip into the water, and the wolves howling in the woods. It's so clear that I can smell the air; [it] gives me goose pimples and a deep feeling of freedom and bliss."
