Sepp Hackhofer – Traveller´s Pleasure (Clematis vitalba)

Andrew Raynor   The vegetables of Individuals Pleasure (Clematis vitalba) are very apparent in winter, because they are included in bright featherlike locks. I captured the vegetables by having an available snowcovered landscape within the history, overextended it a bit and required another publicity outoffocus. In this way it appears really gentle and exhibits the stunning […]

Zoltán Gergely Nagy – Rust

Andrew Raynor   Spring is already here, but I just had to chose this autumn scene for today, because it could almost sum up this winter for me here in Transylvania… Warm temperatures, forests looking like it is October and precocious little snow. Now let’s look forward to spring! Location: Retezat Mountains, Romania Posted on: […]

Fading Winter Ice

Andrew Raynor Fallen iced tree on Lake St. Clair, Michigan | Photo ID # WI-9994 This almost became the first winter that I didn’t photograph a single landscape.  It felt weird – a little bit guilt, a little bit relief.   With the very mild El Niño winter, we were teased a lot here in […]

Angel Fitor – Kindergarten

Andrew Raynor   Nature´s sophistication is sometimes able to make real even the weirdest of dreams. In lake Tanganyika, a gigantic playground for evolution´s vagaries, mouthbrooding cichlids represents the quintessensce of parental care in the world of fishes. Haplotaxodon microlepis, one of them, guards up to 200 fry in-mouth during their first crucial few weeks […]

Sven Začek – Inspired by Roy

Andrew Raynor   Just to take a leaf out of Roy’s book from yesterday, well a small piece of that leaf anyway. Roy had a Musk Ox shaking off snow, I am showing a far smaller animal shaking off water and ice with a caught frog in its mouth. Cheers mate! Location: Estonia Posted on: […]

Roy Mangersnes – Disappearing Musk Ox

Andrew Raynor   40.000 years ago the Musk Ox lived side by side with the Woolly Mammoth in the Norwegian mountains. After going extinct the Musk Ox was re-introduced in the late 40’s and early 50’s. A total of 10 animals survived the re-introduction and has been the basis of todays population of just over 300 animals. The […]

Niall Benvie – Red deer before the storm

Andrew Raynor   The red deer (Cervus elaphus) in Scotland have a pretty hard life on the open hill with little in the way of forest in which to shelter and feed. Most of the woodland found in the Scottish uplands is industrial forest, usually fenced to exclude deer; this helps to account for the high mortality […]
