Thanks for posting this article. The photography was amazing, the pics were artistic and some were haunting.
I liked the penguins, though I'm boycotting Veolia, for dealing with illegal squatters in occupied Palestinian Territory.

Yes, the first the star-gazing deer was phenomenal, show some of the sheer limitless brilliant stars blinking seemingly forever.

Very interesting and beautiful photos. For some, you had to look twice to find out what's on there, and for others I don't know why they were award-winning photos.
My favourite was the leopard

The snow did the photographer ever get that shot? Most of the pictures are awesome, a group of adults in conflab??? What was so profound about that?
