Markus Varesvuo – Sci fi Shag

Andrew Raynor   A black and white study of a heavy snow front approaching and its first snow flakes starting to cover the sun but not yet hiding it totally; a lone Shag flying into the sun… (Phalacrocorax aristotelis) Andy Raynor Dover NH

Alex Mustard – Mandarin Moment

Andrew Raynor   Mandarinfish are incredibly colourful, but extremely secretive fish, living in the dark recesses between the rubble on shallow coral reefs. Each evening they emerge to mate and this is the chance to see and photograph them. The larger males court the females and persuade them to mate by lifting them up into […]

Iñaki Relanzón – Zebras from the sky

Andrew Raynor   Every two years I’m coming back to the Maasai Mara. Is an unforgettable experience. This picture was made from a balloon, following the great migration oz zebras and wildebeests from the Serengueti to the Maasai Mara. Andy Raynor Dover NH

Theo Bosboom – Winter glow

Andrew Raynor   One of the best places to experience very cold and sometimes even Arctic conditions in the Low countries (the Netherlands and Belgium) is to go to the High Fenn (Hoge Venen), the roof of Belgium with an altitude of 600 to 700 meters above sea level.

It seems to make sense looking at […]

Angel Fitor – The skin of the sea

Andrew Raynor   American poet Langston Hughes once wrote: ¨The sea is a desert of waves, a wilderness of water”. And like at deserts and skies, it is right at the edge of the empty vastness of the seas, where man finds, faces, and fathoms himself. Andy Raynor Dover NH

2017 – A year of Despair and Dragons

Andrew Raynor I find it somewhat difficult to write about 2017 as I feel it is something we already have too much of.  The negativity, loss of hope, and the crazy news cycles makes you want to tune out.   Is it so frequent now that our response is simply an emoji reaction so we […]
