September sees the onset of autumn for many of us, but with our September issue we take you to sunnier climes.
Professional wildlife photographer, Mark Sisson, takes us on another wildlife spectacle in his Travel Log series, this time to South Africa's Cape Coast, where we are reminded of all the often-over-looked and extremely diverse wildlife on offer.
Remaining in the second-largest continent, birders and bird photographers will definitely want to read my Book Review of The Birder’s Guide to Africa by Michael Mills. Although travel restrictions currently define our movements, we can spend this time dreaming and planning our next adventure and what could be more perfect than planning a trip across Africa to see its immense variety of birds?
Staying temperate, you may want to take a look at our featured competition this month. We share some of the winning and runner up photos from the Galápagos Photography Competition 2020, a place also abundant with a wide variety of wildlife occupants.
If, after all these hot topics, you need to cool down, our Au Natural article from underwater wildlife photographer, Jamie Hall, will do the job. Jamie is also a seasoned dive instructor and has a wealth of experience, sharing some of his photographic knowledge and incredible images of life in our oceans.
Amongst the various global awareness initiatives throughout September, we have chosen to share your photos of primates, which kickstarts the month with International Primate Day on September 1st.
Heading on to a much cooler theme, we showcase the work of American master photographer, Scott Joshua Dere, in our monthly Spotlight On interview feature. His breathtaking images focus on the fauna found in both the United States and Canada.
Lastly, but by no means least, our regular Photo Challenge highlights your photo entries that encompass mirror images, capturing wildlife reflected in the stillness of water.
Keep an eye out on our website and social media stories for next month’s challenge. The deadline for entries is September 21st, 2020. Find out more here - https://wildplanetphotomagazine.com/event/photo-challenge/.
