Up Close & Personal

  • Dec 18, 2010
This is the 2nd of a group of some of my favorites of the photos taken from those submitted for the 2010 National Geographic's Photography Society. The photographers who submitted these photos have a talent for capturing some of the animals, insects and sea creatures which we may or may not come in close contact with. However, these close-ups certainly add a new dimension to our beautiful world!
1
Take a deep breath...
This photo looks like a painting instead of a captured image. I love the color and how unreal this picture appears to be!
2
I feel alone!
A very soothing and comfortable picture. One where I could easily goes into a dream if it's hung right in my bedroom!
3
Dolphin's Dinner
For most of us, pictures of dolphin often bring a sense of calm and closeness. Dolphin must be man's closest friend in the sea!
4
Remembering Faith
To actually spot a whale is quite something. To take a shot like this is a miracle!
5
Faith, Hope & Love
This one reminds me of those warming greeting cards I used to receive from friends... Nice one!
6
Great Blue Heron with Fish
If only dinner could look so good! Yum!
7
Mantas and Schooling Fish
For someone who's hardly in the sea, this is quite a sight! Makes me want to go snorkeling and diving!
8
Tree Frog and Dahlia
Beautiful colors and the name Dahlia reminds me of an online friend from Sweden who had passed away some years ago...
9
Puffin
I've never seen puffin up so very close! Great color and contrast!
10
Graceful Giant
Another great capture!
11
Gecko on Oahu, Hawaii
Interesting color. Even reptile looks good in Hawaii!
12
Curly Dragonfly
Unusual posture makes this a unique picture!
13
Emerging
It's a process unveiled. Haven't seen anything quite like this on films!
14
Busy Bee
This one get my vote because of the color more than anything. What can I say? I'm partial to shades of purple!
15
Let's Go Home
Never seen so many ducks in one place in such uniformity. Great!
