Excellent nature photography

in Photography, The outdoors

Wandering through the forums on photo.net, I came across the work of Wojciech Grzanka. His macro photography of insects is especially cool. Magnified insects look so other-worldly it is no suprise they have inspired to much science fiction and fantasy, ranging from the brilliant to the amusingly mediocre.

One of the best things about the photo.net community is the sheer level of skill and helpfulness among the community members. At the same time, the quality of other people’s images is almost certain to make you feel like a rank amateur.

PS. Grzanka’s website is pretty slick as well, though the images seem to be the same as those on photo.net.

I thought you would be interested in the Conservatives new policy of not allowing MPs, and other members of the party to attend D’arcy Mcgee’s for freer that “secrets will be spilled along with their drinks”.

Obviously Harper has no understanding of the taboos against spilling your drink in an irish pub!

Tristan,

Interesting. I had lunch there during my second-to-most-recent trip to Ottawa (summer 2003). As I recall, their veggie burger is unusually good.

Hugely magnified bugs are definitely dramatic.

Some other nice photos I ran across. One is used in this Economist article.

Here is some more very nice photography from Smithsonian Magazine. Unfortunately, the files are very small.
