  1. You’ve enriched my Monday, Alex – THANKS:0))! All really beautiful, but I like the power of the eagle picture and the sense of blackness and color in the squid (?) one. Cheers from Pennsylvania!

    • The top one was the main winner but the eagle one could easily have won. Think of the views they must get, and the feeling of flying through the air all the time. It’s some photograph.

  2. Such great photos, I love them all. Snow Exposure stood out for me, it looks almost like a painting. And the marmot/fox photo is so perfect, I can’t imagine how much time the photographer must’ve spent on the wait!

  3. I really love the eagle. The perspective is amazing and the sky 8s breathtaking. Pond world was also intriguing. The colors in nature sometimes surprise me.
