I’ve already reviewed Winter Wonderland but just had to dedicate a seperate post for the ice statues. I’ve always seen them as the highlight of my visit, and have posted about them in previous years. And this year’s effort, with the Deep Sea Adventure theme, did not disappoint. Here are my favourites.
Magnetic, electric, eclectic eyes,
That shine like frozen diamonds raised by sunlight,
Decorated by free-falling hair that parades and cascades
With the freedom of flight, that will best strike
Those able to see the beauty within,
that goes beyond mere skin
I’ve quoted countless of my favourite poems, but I do like to share my own work too. The last one, She Loved Me Once, was in June, so I was certainly due.
I missed The Astronomy Photographer of the Year when it came out earlier but when I saw the entries they blew me away so much I just had to highlight some of them. They really do make you aware of the beauty of the world above us. Do you have a favourite? Can you guess the winner? Feel free to guess the one I liked most too if you like.
It was such a beautiful sight after Storm Ophelia hit London, I had to add another photo to the ones I added in a recent post.
I liked the idea of a view within a view so took this from my (stationary) car while on my way to Coniston in the Lake District. You can find another photo from my trip here.
These are a collection of my favourite photographs from an exhibition of the World Photography Awards in Somerset House, London. This is the tenth edition of the highly acclaimed competition, which includes categories like Natural World, Landscape, Still Life, Sport and Conceptual. There was also a section including the work of photographer and photojournalist Martin Parr.
I spotted this Hidden Worlds competition from the website Photocrowd, where those entering were asked to “look at architecture from a different perspective and reveal places where we can escape or let our imagination run free”. Such a creative prompting received all manners of interpretation. Below are my favourite eight. Do you have a favourite? What theme do you think would make a great idea for a photographic competition?
I’ve always been interested in how photographers capture the spectacular beauty of nature. Unlike a previous post I did on photographs from the National Geographic, I know neither the place nor photographer but wanted to share them all the same. Is there one that stands out for you?
