Natures Olympian by Capturing-the-Light Natures Olympian by Capturing-the-Light
This Friday in the UK the Olympics are officially opened, men, women from around the world, united as one to seek to become the best in their field of sport. the world will watch in wonderment as records are broken, history is made. I wish luck to each and every country and contestant. Spare a thought though for natures olympians, the landscapes around us, battling the encroachment of man, the changing seasons, global warming, natural disasters, forest fires, earth quakes, landslides, flooding, the list goes on. Not just a 4 yearly affair, but day in day out, month in, year out, all around us. Yet always there is a winner, the everchanging landscape, fighting, strugggling, standing tall and bring beauty to the world, that too me is one hell of an olympian feat, to sustain that and achieve that since time began. Is it any wonder we love to photograph natures riches??

Thank you so much for viewing this work.

To everyone that favourites any of my work, please accept in advance my sincere thanks for doing so. For those that comment on this or any other photograph, you will always recieve a reply. Demands on my time may mean a delay on occassions in responding, but I will always reply. Thank you for visiting this page, the support of all visitors is truly appreciated. Simon

Don't forget the wildlife athletes, they can run faster, swim faster, jump higher, and in weightlifting they're the champs :D
