#1 Two Worlds
“You can not plan such conditions—it was pure luck because I was supposed to be shooting 2 km from the spot when this storm started. I saw the red glow above the mountain and ran to my car to reach the western side of the mountain.”
#2 The Dark Hedges
One of the highlights in Northern Ireland for friends of “Game of Thrones” is the alley Bregagh Road in Antrim County.
#3 Eye Of The Giant
Eye contact with a humpback whale can be a powerful experience. They are intelligent, curious, social animals with unique personalities and moods.
#4 Best Friends
To take this photo, the artist made his dogs run together, starting at a different point so that the faster one could reach the slower one exactly on the log. It’s one shot that required a lot of preparation to understand their behavior running side by side.
#5 Dancing Fog
Dancing fog around the trees and mountains a short time before sunset.
#6 Little Moments Of Magic
A pair of baby swans waddling up onshore and cuddling in the Lakefront Promenade of Toronto, Canada.
#7 Black Mountain
In January 2019, Canberra had one of the most spectacular lightning storms ever. It passed the city from west to east over the black mountains and continued towards Brindabella mountains.
#8 Hybrid Solar Eclipse And Maasai Warrior
“This photograph is my tribute to Geoffrey Lowa. He was a friend that I never met in person. He was planning to be my host, driver, and photo model for a hybrid solar eclipse in Kenya. Sadly, he was killed just one week before I arrived. His friend Peter Nakua, who tried to save his life, is standing on a hill during 11 seconds of totality.”
#9 Spanish Beauty
A beautiful Spanish stallion with the name Doncel the Aymaran.
“Clouds were flowing above Mt. Fuji. The long-exposure shooting and the result of finishing with blue ink gave me an image as if I were in a different world. When I saw the finished image, I heard JAZZ.”
#11 Tateyama Milky Way
Tateyama is one of the snowiest places in Japan. This picture was taken at the beginning of May, but it was all snow-covered.
#12 Lone Tree, Not Lonely
The Lone Tree of Lake Wanaka is a very famous viewpoint in New Zealand. Actually, the Lone Tree is not lonely at all. Many birds are always perched on it.
#13 First Snowfall
A change over of the seasons, capturing the first snowfall at Moraine Lake.
#14 Kings & Queens
The African lion is one such animal that is facing a dire threat to its existence. Canned hunting, specific breeding for the “cub petting” trade, and the illicit lion bone market are genuine threats to the African lion’s continued existence.
#15 The Depths Of Winter Forest
In the winter forest, an enchanting atmosphere when fog had just started to retreat a bit, revealing icy trees standing strong in icy conditions.
#16 Chaos Over Kansas
Mesocyclone pierced by lightning under an incredible supercell in the great plains of the Tornado Alley.
#17 Colossal Shadows: Super Tuskers Of East Africa
There are only an estimated 24 super tusk elephants left on Earth. These giants appear pulled from the pages of a bygone era, nearly out of place in today’s day and age.
