Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition

I always look forward to this exhibition at the Natural History Museum and this year was no disappointment.  Aside from the picture of the Giant Sequoia in my last post, there are five tree related images that really caught my attention.  The first is an underwater view of some trees using a wide angle lens by Theo Bosboom from the Netherlands.

The next image  is a beautiful picture of Kokerboom trees in Namibia by Uge Fuertes Sans from Spain.

There is a magical quality to this picture of unusual looking trees.  The photographer took a long exposure and shone a torch on selected trees.  The next picture is of Acacia trees in the Namibian desert during a rare fog by Marsel van Oosten from The Netherlands.

The following image shows an interesting distortion of perspective using a double in-camera exposure by Agorastos Papatsanis from Greece.

The last image, by Kalyan Varma from India is of the embryo of an Andaman Redwood seed.  The branching patterns and shape and form of the seed in this macro/close up image are intriguing.

Lastly one of the Photojournalist Award entries by Daniel Beltra called ‘The Damned Rainforest’ caught my eye.  He created a short photographic essay with accompanying text about the destruction of the rainforest for a hydroelectric dam on the Xingu River in Brazil for Greenpeace.
