Winning Wildlife Photographs
If you have a few minutes to spare, do yourself a favor and spend some time browsing through a selection of dazzling nature and wildlife images, each one a winner in the 2010 competition organized by the Windland Smith Rice International Awards program.
It’s all a bit complicated, but evidently the Windland Smith Rice International Awards program, in conjunction with Nature’s Best Photography, holds an annual nature photography competition, regarded as one of the most prestigious in this highly-competitive field.
What I did establish (from Wikipedia) is that the Windland Smith Rice International Awards are named after Sandra Windland “Wendy” Smith Rice (1970–2005), an American photographer recognized for her work in nature and animals.
If you’re happy using Flash to scroll through images while clicking on icons or tabs to enlarge the images and read more details, then visit the gallery of winning photos on the Nature’s Best Photography website.
Personally I hate relying on Flash to look at images and much prefer the way the Mail Online has presented the winning wildlife photos, together with relevant information about the photographer, the circumstances under which the shot was taken, and camera gear used.
