AMAZING PHOTOS OF FORESTS, BABY ELEPHANTS, AND OTHER WINNING PHOTOS

Posted by

This week on “Photos of the Week”  I have chosen once again to go to some of those “Like” pages on Facebook.  These pages have such a great collection of great photographers who have posted some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen in such a great collection.  Last week, I found several great photos that was very famous and the talk of the industry, one with a white tiger that was amazing.  So, this week, take a look at what great photos I have found on the following “Like” pages.  And perhaps you could go to these pages and “like” them yourselves.

  •  AMAZING PICTURES (note:  there are several “Like” pages called Amazing Pictures, but carefully look through them to get the real good ones.
  • JOY OF ANIMALS (If you love animals, all kinds, this is a great “like” page)
  • BROOKE SHADEN PHOTOGRAPHY

This photo is simply titled Bamboo Forest in Japan.  Lovely green forest, with leading lines, makes a great composed photo.  No photographer listed, but well done.

This is an amazing formation called “Wave Rock”.  I don’t think we could get a feel for the size of this rock without adding the human in the picture.  This makes the image more spectacular.  Here is the description left with the picture:

“Wave Rock”
Wave Rock is a natural rock formation that is shaped like a tall breaking ocean wave. The “wave” is about 14 m (46 ft) high and around 110 m (360 ft) long.
It forms the north side of a solitary granite hill known as “Hyden Rock” . Wave Rock and Hyden Rock are part of a 160 ha (395-acre) nature reserve, Hyden Wildlife Park.

This photo is amazing because it just has great leading lines, one of the things you look for in composition.  Good color, amazing clouds, it just makes for a great winning photo.

Photo compliments of “Joy of Animals”

Anyone who loves elephants, would love how this baby and mother are playing together.  These animals are just adorable.  Hard to think these get slaughtered as they grow their tusks, but, they are so photogenic.  Alongside this photo was this caption:

 

Just need a little help here Mom!

This photo is just adorable.  Anyone who knows this dog, knows that it is a very loveable pet, and can enjoy being with someone this small.  A beautiful picture and oh so sweet.

 

PORTRAIT OF THE WEEK:

PHOTO BY:  BROOKE SHADEN PHOTOGRAPHY

Brooke is one of America’s most influential and exciting portrait photographers of this century.  Using ideas in her head, she often takes those ideas and creates self portraits of the thoughts that are running through her head.  It must be fun to think of these things and then create them yourself.  Think of the time it takes to put into  a picture like this.  Here is the description she put alongside this photo:

Photography

I have spent the last two days reflecting on the utter uncertainty that my life has taken on recently. It is welcome yet terrifying. It is motivating yet crippling. Maybe one day I’ll be able to share the depths of it, and maybe not. But in all of this thinking, I feel padded with community. That I can come here and tell you about the waves I’ve been riding up and down and up again is what moves me. I have spent time hiding in books, getting lost in fantasies and writing my own. I have poured over pages of poetry and found myself in the words of other poets. I am experiencing the duality of living a story and writing it at the same time. It is my greatest gift.
 Brooke has a great website to see some of her other great photos.  Please go to the following websites to see some more of her great work:
Brooke also has a passion for life.  I admire Brooke fo promoting passion for life, and she has established her own website called Passion for life.  Please check this out too:
Congratulations Brooke.  I hope to meet you some day and spend time with you in seeing how you create some of these amazing photos.  I hope you enjoy this little bit of publicity throughout the world, because you deserve this recognition.
