I Love Nature and Wildlife Photography

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,016 People

    I wouldn't say that I love it

    but I do like it. I'm not a good photographer and I don't even own a real camera but I like to take pictures on my iPhone. When I see a beautiful landscape or a breathtaking view I like to take a picture and will often look at them to gain a sense of peacefulness and calm.

    Contest

    I once entered a photography contest at our local wildlife organization. The photos of course had to be of nature and/or wildlife. I had decided that I would take a picture of something that no one else had. Of course most pictures were of everyday ordinary flowers or wildlife...

    Doh!

    I was working on my laptop when , out of the corner of my eye, I see a beautiful juvenile red-shouldered hawk a few feet from the window on the railing. I get up very slowly and its head swiveled immediately. It was watching me like--well, a hawk!Sneak to the other room where my...

    Avoid The Crowds- Bird Photography

    The kaka is an endangered NZ bush parrot.  There's a lovely population around Puhaka near Martinborough.  While the birds are habituated to people, lots of people also disrupt the birds.  They like to give as good as they get- the sight of a kaka zooming along at just above...

    This is one of my favorite places on earth,

    the falls at Robert Treman park in Ithaca NY. I took this photo back in early November on one of the last warm days we had. Ithaca is a beautiful area, surrounded by several waterfalls, gorges, hiking trails and is located at the southernmost part of Cayuga Lake. I visit this...

    I have been doing wildlife photography

    for just under a year and a half now and I have to say, it is the most relaxing thing to do. I love to just go out and get lost in the wind and the nature and I find all wildlife fascinating. I rarely take decent photos due to the fact that most of the things I like photograph...

    I went for a walk with my parents

    and dog yesterday evening and by chance stumbled upon a pair of kingfishers! This was very exciting for me because I have wanted to photograph them for ages, but they're so small and fast and it is rare that I even see them so I was really happy to be able to observe them...

    Don't Forget The Water

    In one of my earlier trips in the Northern Territory (Australia) I carefully loaded myself up with what I thought was a light kit. A small back-pack, waist pack, camera gear, water...and hiked in. Part of the way in I realised I was losing water faster than I could drink it- the...

    I'm not positive, but pretty sure this was sunset, not sunrise. I'm not generally up before sunrise. I love a beautiful sky!
