Fantastiche foto del concorso NG..*_*

One of the best contests each year is the National Geographic Photography Contest. They always receive so many photographic entries that are simply amazing shot from locations all over the world. I picked out a few of my favorites to share here along with the links to go see more.

Photographers of all skill levels participate in the National Geographic Photo Contest each year submitting over 15,000 photos across three different categories, Nature, People and Places. The photographs are judged on creativity and photographic quality by a panel of experts. There is one first place winner in each category and a grand prize winner as well. You can go see all the entries right now on the National Geographic Photo Contest Website.

I was about to pack my bags I hear this juvenile Spectacled Spiderhunter (Arachnothera flavigaster) calling chi-chit chi-chit trying to attract the attention of its parents above while flapping its wings. But the parents ignored it, and the it flew away – and I did not see it again.

Photo and caption by Mark Meyer – Hikers under the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau, Alaska. When conditions are right, streams melt holes into the glacier. At times they are large and stable enough for exploration. The ice filters out most colors of light except for the blue wavelengths leaving a stunning blue glowing from the ice above.

Scatti dalla Sicilia!

Questa è la spiaggia nei pressi di San Vito, con le sue splendide formazioni rocciose..

Il nosto pianeta è un posto stupendo e non smette mai di stupirmi, peccato che noi stessi lo stiamo distruggendo e non lo preserviamo….

   

Just awesome photos.

Rientro dall’Africa…

Campeggio notturno in Liguria..

Finalmente sono riuscito a provarlo. Estrema libertà, natura allo stato selvaggio.

Ho campeggiato sulle montagne liguri sopra Varigotti, un posto meraviglioso pieno ancora di vegetazione e tanta ma tanta pace…

Sono riuscito a fare qualche bello scatto, e ho approfittato anche della cornice della spiaggia del paese per immortalare un bel tramonto….

Osservatorio di Sormano

Come promesso in precedenza ecco gli scatti dell’uscita all’osservatorio di Sormano, nonostante il tempo che (come al solito) si era messo male, la persistenza ci ha premiato regalandoci un inatteso e piacevole spettacolo….

Trasformare uno scatto anonimo in una foto HDR

Un vecchio scatto che non ti convinceva può essere facilmente ripreso e se accettiamo di usare una pesante pp diventa uno scatto interessante.

È il caso di questa foto scattata vicino Montevecchia, dove la fretta non mi ha concesso di fare più scatti.

Nonostante tutto però la foto adesso anche se “finta” ha un suo perché e trasmette quella che era l’atmosfera quella sera…

Sentiero geologico di Canzo (LC)

Questo Weekend, nonostante il tempo non ottimo ho avuto la possibilità di fare una breve passeggiata sul sentiero geologico ai piedi dei “corni di canzo”.

Il sentiero si snoda partendo da via del Gujion seguendo la via per Terz’alpe.

È una passeggiata di circa 50 minuti dove è possibile ammirare scorci splendidi nel bosco e dove il fiume che scende dal monte forma una serie di infinite cascate e vasche.

Lungo tutto il sentiero è possibile documentarsi leggendo i vari cartelli che spiegano la costituzione geologica della zona.

Il sentiero Geologico è una meta molto rinomata dove è facile trovare fotografi escursionisti e famiglie, nonostante tutto però rimane un posto piacevolissimo e come potete vedere dai miei scatti, ricco di notevole fascino naturalistico.

Ciao e alla prossima.
