In our packed February issue, we have something for everyone - guaranteed. We are delighted to share our quarterly seasonal feature, Winter Visions. With so many wonderful entries, it was a mammoth task to choose between them all. We hope you enjoy seeing them as much as we did and thank you to all those who took part.
This month, leading wildlife photographer, Mark Sisson, asks himself what it is about big cats that led him to Brazil to photograph the magnificent jaguars. Wildlife photographer, Dawn Wilson, informs us how you can plan a trip to the Rockies, in Colorado, for the autumnal rutting season, and Wild Planet reader, Swayamsiddha Mohapatra, shares his impressive images from Kibale, Uganda, and tells us how we can accomplish a photographic trek there ourselves.
We also review The Art of Fungi Photography. Paul Hobson’s latest book has some very creative and imaginative ideas for some alternative photography techniques, including the use of fireworks and infrared. If you have ever felt that you lack ideas or creativity, this book will certainly give any photographer plenty of suggestions to experiment with.
If that wasn’t enough, we share some of the very recent winning images from the Ocean Art 2018 photography competition. Feast your eyes on some weird and wonderful underwater species in a selection of our favourites and be sure to also view the full, stunning portfolio online.
So, enjoy this issue full of impressive photography and fascinating articles that we hope will leave you inspired and ready to book your next photography trip.
Wild Planet reader and wildlife photographer Swayamsiddha Mohapatra provides a comprehensive guide to the wonders found in Kibale National Park, Uganda, and tells us how we can accomplish a photographic trek ourselves.
