Top 40 Nature Photographs

No, they're obviously not mine!

These came from the International League of Conservation Photographers as a celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. I have to point out that 10% of them are the work of northern Minnesota resident Jim Brandenburg. I highly recommend the documentary Chased By The Light which details his experience of taking only one photograph a day for 90 days.

Kia ora GT,
Small world. A guy I know here in New Zealand who is a writer, mountaineer, adventurer, and runs the Red Cross in Indonesia now, spent time with Brandenburg on Ellesmere Island and told me of some very close encounters they had with wolves. He is an amazing photographer, but I also think all of us whom love being in the wild can get amongst some fantastic opportunities with our little cameras as well. Particularly when I am relatively incapacitated as now, I have been much enjoying going through my old photos to organize and find great joy in things I missed previously. Or maybe it is just the memories coming through. Kia kaha.
Cheers,
Robb

Hi Robb,
Hope the healing continues on schedule.

Last year when I was reducing my possessions I looked through all my photos as well. It is a lot of fun and brings back good times--rehabbing orphan raccoons, a day at a wolf education center with one standing face to face with me with paws on my arms, various nature trips with disabled folks in the Boston area, and on and on. I'm off on a whale watch Friday--I've never yet gotten a good whale photo, but I'll try again.
