Mads Madsen is a history student pursuing a Master’s degree in ancient Greece and Rome history. Being obsessed with history, he has the best hobby a person like him could want colorizing old photos. His whole inspirations started after he saw some colorized pictures of the post on Reddit.

The colorization he saw was done all by hand with oil colors by an old lady. He got obsessed with it and started doing something like that on his own. He has his own criteria when choosing a photo for his project.

“I’ve always had a fascination with beautiful eyes, and that’s how I pick most of my photographs,” said the man. “If you look through my gallery, you’ll see that most of the eyes there are steely-blue or sky-blue, and they (hopefully) are framed beautifully by the surrounding color, contrasting with it really nicely. So that’s the main criteria.”

Photographer Captures Vast Array of Wild Animals That Cross a Nearby Log Bridge

While we might not all be lucky enough to have bears and bobcats in our backyard, it’s super easy to capture footage of your own local wildlife. All you need to do is invest in one of the best trail cameras, pick a suitable spot in your garden and then simply sit back and wait. The beauty of trail cameras is that they completely remove the human element from wildlife photography and videography. Even the most experienced wildlife photographer runs the risk of encroaching on their subject’s space and affecting their behavior.

And the fact that you don’t need a pro-level camera and telephoto lens to capture amazing footage of local wildlife – is also proved by a YouTube video. The video shows an incredible mixture of animals crossing a log bridge in Pennsylvania. Captured by local man Robert Bush using a camera trap, wildlife including bears, bobcats, grouse, beavers, and more used a fallen log to traverse the terrain. In addition, Bush runs a Facebook Page and YouTube Channel Bob’s Pennsylvania Wildlife Camera, where he posts all of his footage as it’s captured.

Hence, you can find Robert’s video below which shows animals that crossed the bridge over the course of one year. This is a natural habitat of all these species, and it’s fascinating just how many of them there are. In the meantime, check out more of Robert Bush’s incredible wildlife footage here. It’s all about wildlife and if you enjoy wildlife photography and films, I’m sure you’ll love it!

This amazing video was created using a trail camera over the course of a year. It seems that Robert Bush was able to cannily predict that the fallen log would provide a ‘choke point’ for land-based wildlife to be able to cross the river.
