Shooting in low light can be very tough! Even a wide aperture and high ISO can result in slow shutter speeds and unwanted noise. Lucky for me, I was able to use this street lamp as an extra light source. This enabled me to shoot faster, with a lower ISO, producing this night shot of a Fox within its urban environment. I would love to know what you all think? 😊🦊 #Fox #Foxy #Urban #LowLight #NightLife #CityLife #London #UK #Animal #WildPlanetPhotoMag #NatureTTL #NatureWWP #TheBritishWildlife #OurWorldsWildlife #UKWildlifeImages #UK_Wildlife_Images #WildlifePlanet #EarthCapture #Jessops #JessopsMoments #AnimalsDiary #Best_NaturePictures #AnimalOnPlanet #Nature_Seekers #Nature_Brilliance #WoodlandTrust #EarthPix #Earth_Shotz #Everything_Animals #The_Gallery_Of_Magic

“Valley of light” Taken on the Nikon D850. For the last month I have had the opportunity given to me buy @nikonaustralia to use the D850, and what else can I say but this camera is on a next level. I can’t wait to show you more images that I have shot over the next few weeks as I get the time to view and post process them!

"Ebony and Ivory". Western Reef Egrets at Modhwa beach, Kutch , Gujarat. This place is completely off the tourist radar. I came to know of this little fishing village from a birder friend. About five km from Mandvi. Lovely beach with friendly fishermen and little kids playing beach cricket. Gulls, terns, plovers and egrets flock around returning fishing boats and look for minnows in the receding tide and shallow pools. So many unexplored places to see in India. #india_gram #indiatravel #indianwildlife #indiaclicks #india_everyday #indianbirds #ourkutch #kutch #beaches #birdphotography #birdsofinstagram #heron #egret #gujarattourism #gujarat #natgeowild #earthcapture #travelbloggers #postcardfromtheworld #travelersnotebook #traveltales #traveldeeper #exploretheworld #travelersnotebook #travelguide #instagood

DRIBBLE CHOPS 🐆 😋 💦 On a recent trip to the Kruger we struck a lot of gold 🌟 Within a few hours of driving through the golden gates 🚪 💫 👀😍 we hit upon our first pot 🌟 There he lay his whole body moulded to the tree 🌲 His gold & Black fur sinking into the dry bark of the branches having totally given in to the heat of the mid Morning sun ☀️ and enjoying some much needed dozing 💤 and dreaming no doubt 💭 🦌 😋. What a sight ! My eyes could hardly tell my brain 🧠 quick enough and I had to take a minute to breath and let it register . This was my 1st Leopard 🐆 in a tree ! 🌲 😍 The tree being my best friend as it just happened to set up home on the side of the road 🌳 so we were feet away 😀 What a magnificent beautiful creature ! 😍💛🖤 We sat in awe for a while just watching it’s fur glistening as it took sleepy breaths then let it be as we moved on almost combusting with happiness ! 👏 😀😍 This I will never forget ! The sweetest of dreams to you 🐆 💤💚 Taken in Kruger National Park 🏞 aboutsouthafrica #thisissouthafrica #animal_sultans #africanamazing #african_portraits #africanature #natgeocreative #nature_brilliance #natgeotravel #ok_animals #shots_of_animals #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeof_sa #bbcwildlifemagazine #excellent_nature #foreversouthafrica #igs_africa #bns_animals #photo_pond #yourshotphotographer #wu_africa #everything_animals #earthcapture #bd_pro #zonephotographer #featured_wildlife #bbcearth #krugernationalpark #krugerexplorer #krugerpark

Here in New Zealand, and especially in the South Island, we frequently get a windy weather condition which we refer to as a “nor’wester”. It starts when moist air from the Tasman Sea rises over the Southern Alps then quickly cools and condenses. On the West Coast this results in rain. A LOT of rain (the Cropp River catchment has a 365 day record of 18.4m / 60.4 ft!!). But just 200 km away on the East Coast, the energy released from the condensation process combined with the drop in altitude releases a dry, hot and at times ferocious wind. Amazing cloud formations, including lenticulars and helm clouds, also result. For the landscape photographer, sunrises during nor’westerly conditions can often be spectacular as there are usually no clouds on the eastern horizon blocking the rising sun, which allows all that nor’west cloud to light and colour up. Amazing sunsets are a little harder to come by due to the likelihood of clouds on the western horizon, but when they do happen they’re equally as spectacular. This shot was taken at sunset just down the road from home.

Lisbon is one of my favourite cities. The views are incredible and the food is amazing. The Tarte de Natas, chorizo and Portuguese chicken, it’s all so good!

Young Hamadryas baboons in the troop will play together. Games include wrestling, swinging from vines and chase. A little before a baboon turns 2 years old, it starts becoming a juvenile and grows one pound every three months, according to the Amboseli Baboon Research Project. They become mature at around 6 to 8 years old.

✏️📸 Photo & Words by @cajun_lovechild ♥️ . As photographers we are constantly chasing light, often subconsciously. We understand that light can change a mood or give a total different look to the scene. We can intuitively use light to our advantage or manipulate it so we get the effect that we’re after. Light or the void of it can drastically alter an appearance, perception or perspective. . Standing in the late afternoon wooded area, the smell of the marsh reached my nostrils bringing thoughts of Papa’s ivory shrimp boots and his dark grey felt hat. Sunday dinners at my grandparents down the bayou lingered in my mind. Like ancient trees decaying and the ground soggily coming back to life after an unexpectedly bipolar winter, I waited patiently. Unable to see with the naked eye, I was happily aware of a barn owl who stopped in his travels to visit. He was the proud new occupant of a deep burrow within an aged cedar tree. . Licorice lace adorned George the owl’s window and with my lens I could barely see his masterful face. I’m sure he was aware of me, my 5’2” presence, perhaps a tiny giant in his sight. In anticipation, I scanned the trees as darkened tones of rose gold light fell heavily. My eyes and camera adjusted focus, it was still winter and a sharp cold wind blew on my face reminding me that nightfall was near. March, in like a lion. Roar. . A few flurries dreamingly landed on my lens as I watched the light fade. The dark shadows grew larger, traveling from trunk to trunk, limb to limb. A symphony rang in my ears, birds calling, chirping, one toad croaking. It often reminded me of the dangers and absolute beauty of the many inhabitants that surrounded me. . The landscape changed characteristics as last of the gold gave warmth, revealing some trees that wore blankets of lichen and darkness, clinging on to trunks and limb, the dark retreating when it was lit by the sun. . In my lifetime I’ve come to realize that we have both light and dark within us and it’s our personal decision to choose what we act upon. We can’t be all sun or all moon and it’s the depth of the lightness or darkness of who we are that makes life most significant. - Nancy Marie ♥️

♥️Photography by Nancy Marie @cajunlovechild .: Artist Inspiration: Future Holds Laura Brehm @laurabrehmmusic ft Evoke @evoke . Today on my birthday I celebrate and honor myself As I reflect on the chapters that have presented and ended . Perhaps half of my life is over . I’ve come to the realization that I’m not at all where I’d expected myself to be in this thing Called life . In some ways I’m okay with that . I give myself some slack because I Realize that nearly half or more of the population is dissatisfied At their standing in there own life . It’s just that way We all want to be better We want to matter We have needs We have wants Some of us live for dreams Some live for desire . Sometimes it is easier with more Less makes life not so complicated Life is simply not easy . Life, for me has turned out to be an Interesting and full to the brim . Leaving nothing boring A life seemingly a whirlwind of chance and whimsy . I can’t complain . But, I’m human I’m guilty because I do complain Sometimes often And mostly not so much . I’ve had many proud moments and periods Sometimes questioning my questionable choices . I’ve had many hard lessons to learn I’ve had some I had to ultimately repeat . I’ve could’ve been dead or have been seriously injured Remember, my life is not boring . I have stories to tell . I’ve been protected and blessed . I’ve seen things I’ve never thought I’d imagined I’d see in my lifetime Or even hoped to be in the proximity of . My heart always longs for adventure Being creative, living inspired Being love hoped for and love personified Are wants and hopes deep in my core . Proud of my accomplishments Realizing the paths for way more growth Finding trails of snow covered bridges And paths in my journey to cross . Hiding a dormant of Pink passion gypsy flowers Another year a little bit older and wiser Seeking beautiful sunshine butterfly kisses . Lightly skipping with ruby love droplets Too heavy to carry grudges . Electric air alive with Wild winter magenta tones Gold and lime light foil . Cool strobes of electric purples and blues On this February 19th day Happy birthday to me. - #happybirthdaytome ♥️ words by Nancy Marie
