Piercing orange eyes of an Arctic fox stand out against its white coat and its snowy surroundings as it stares at a photographer.<br />
<br />
The image was taken in the valley of Thorsmork in southern Iceland by professional photographer Joe Hall, 32.<br />
<br />
Mr Hall, who is from London but lives in Reykjavik said, "This is an Arctic fox in the white morph - they transition to this colour from their summer colour, however some do remain in the blue morph all year round."<br />
<br />
"For a fraction of a second, I managed to catch the fox staring at me.   It was a powerful moment, one which I won’t forget too quickly.   The Arctic fox is like a ghost, especially in winter.  It moves silently and can rarely be seen."<br />
