  • A Simple Life

    by Ellenboughn | 24th of April, 2007

    by Ellenboughn | 6th of March, 2007

  • 100 photos uploaded! Perspective from a passionate photographer

    by Samuelbrown1 | 23rd of June, 2016

  • Patience and wildlife photography

    by Lightpro | 7th of June, 2016

    In wildlife photography the best image almost never happens with the first exposure, sometimes we have to wait for the situation to develop. Watching and waiting after you grab your first exposure can yield the better result. Raccoons are mostly nocturnal animals, so sitting... More

  • New Eyes

    by Geomergent | 7th of May, 2016

  • Bringing in the Birds

    by Melodyanne | 22nd of April, 2016

    Blue Birds are beautiful, but shy . . . they feed in my lawn regularly and I wanted very much to capture a few photos of them. The question was how to get close enough with the camera gear I own to get a good picture. First I established a feeding area near my house. I... More

  • Leopards

    by Physi28 | 14th of March, 2016

    On my last five trips to Kenya and visiting mainly the Tsavo West and East NP as well as Maasai Mara (one time) I always tried to stay away from the masses of tourists in their mini-busses. Actually most tourists want to see the so-called "big five" . Elephant, Buffalo,... More
