Just looking for

In this moment is important only to focus on the right detail of the huge colorful spectrum. I love the details which is unavailable for people without a gift - "stop for a while, calm yourself... continue reading

Face to face with our "relatives"

As it happens when we are confronted with the face of a primate, we sometimes get a shocking impression of looking at somebody who is familiar to us.

I started working on making it real. On the same day, from the same terrace, I clicked the sunset.There is a marshland near my place and a lot of... continue reading

Wildlife Photography: Getting Close
