As someone who grew up a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I just had to share this incredible shot of one from the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. It was taken by specialist underwater photographer Aimee Jan, and won the Ocean Photographer of the Year 2021, as run by Oceanographic Magazine.
As I often say, nature really is incredible. And a big part of nature is the wonderful wildlife. So please enjoy these winners from 2020. Do you have a favourite? Can you guess the overall winner?
Photography and travel are two big passisons of mine, so when I saw the BBC had highlighted entrants from The International Landcape Photographer of the year I just had to share my favourites with you. You can find the rest of the winners on the official competition website here, which were whittled down from 3,403 entries.
I recently went to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition in the very wonderful The Natural History Museum in South Kensington. It was so good I just had to share some of my favourite photographs. If you are anywhere in and around London, I really recommend you go. It runs until the 23 March 2014. Even if you can’t go though, you can still buy either a print or canvas of the entrants in different sizes. Below are eight of the ones that caught my eye but there are plenty of others. If you hover on each photograph you’ll get its name and who took it.
One quiz just didn’t cover it. Who knew there was so many animals referenced in films? Because you all deserve it, have another go with a different set of films.
