This really is the most amazing sideshow that you'll ever see!

See it HERE.

I don't know about you, but after that I'm heading for a walk on the beach and some fresh air !!

Take care ATS, Kiwi

Absolutly stunning!
My favorite was " Twilight of the Giants".
Makes me so pissed off and confused that there are people out there that are deliberatly trying to destroy all that is beautiful and awe inspiring on our Planet.
Great job on the pics!

Great link! It is nice to take a break from all the nasty news out there and look at the beauty of what is here. I really liked the elephant pictures too!

No worries, and yes that's my favourite too, the colours and moon reflection, just wow!

You are so right my friend, it angers me a little though when I think of what's happening in the Gulf of Mexico though, especially when I see the Picture of the Seals!

All the best to you both, Kiwi!

I think the brilliant thing about that photo is what it represents, a moment when the great ape and Jane connect, yes a truly amazing photo!

Hope to be seeing your work one day!

Very nice Kiwifoot.

My favorite would have to be 'Tortoises at Dawn'. Not something you see every day that's for sure!

.......a nature photographer.....what an awesome job....

Some of them look so unreal don't they? I mean I guess they've been touched up or special filters used, but some of the actual scenes look so weird, I guess they have to be real to be considered.

That would be in my top 5 jobs my friend.

All the best, kiwi

Awesome pictures, S+F.

Is it possible to get those pictures down from Flickr?

By whose standards? Who is this user this ILPC guy? International L P C something? Some were good shots but I saw alot of generic images which are very similar to what I've seen thousands of. Also some had really bad motion blur such as the rampaging elephant in the river. I liked the wolf peeking from behind the tree perhaps best. That had something in it, the rest were just ok.

There must be a way, but I couldn't do it!

Unless you just take a snapshot then edit it.

All the best, Kiwi

LOL PsykoOps you're a hard man to please my friend!

I guess it depends on your viewpoint, it isn't JUST the photographic technique, the result or the colour, but something within. It's as if the scenes are ephemeral, lasting only a moment before man destroys whatever beauty is apparent in the photo.

I dunno buddy, I think either you appreciate nature or you don't, it isn't just the photo itself, but for a pro like yourself I guess it's hard!

All the best mate, Kiwi

I'm wouldn't consider myself hard to please. It's just that I've seen millions of photos and you start to see the same stuff over and over again. Such as the scenic pictures with dunes and such. I'm not that bitchy about technique but some of those shots are just horrible. Also what is in the picture itself is why I like the wolf shot. Also the camel shadows from above is quite nice but not very original.
