The Horses Of Neptune

The Horses Of Neptune

One day Neptune, God of the Sea, was traveling his domain in his chariot drawn by nine white horses, when, passing in front of the mouth of the Rhone, he met a farmer who was having trouble with a black bull: “Here is my best horse; if you know how to make him a friend, he will be an irreplaceable ally against the black bull. But remember, he comes from the immensity of the sea and he was led by a god: it will be necessary, when he wants, to let him free to come and deeply breathe his marine and divine origins. ” This is the legend about the Camargue Horses.

Childhood Days

Childhood Days

Due to Covid, the world has come to a standstill, but not the emotions of nature. I remembered my childhood while capturing these beautiful chicks. I would just sit there the whole day watching them & capture those priceless moments as they unfold. It all started with a shy look & peek through mom’s feathers. They spend all their time around mom & sleep under the belly of mom, cuddled by the warmth of mother’s love. Tender moments while learning the art of preening, exciting fun in the water with siblings, vital lessons on food & shivering in strain. Childhood is awesome with mom around us to take care.

Emperor Penguins

Emperor Penguins

I was literally lying flat on the ground while I was shooting this image. Why I did this is because when we go lower than their height, they feel less scared being around us and for the same reason, this particular Emperor family spent a good amount of time beside me and I was lucky enough to capture some beautiful shots. On this particular trip I had walked an average of 8 hours per day in search of a perfect frame. My name is Thomas Vijayan, I am basically an architect hailing from Kerala, India, also known as God’s Own Country. I was raised in Bangalore and have now settled in Canada with my family. I have traveled all the seven continents for photography, which is my passion but not my profession. The big cats have always been my favorite subject for photography. To me there is nothing called “perfection” in any photography; every click to me is an experience, the more I click, the more I learn something new. I give more importance to quality than clicking pictures in quantity.

An image of a storm cell moving towards the Island in the Florida Keys I am a landscape photographer, originally from the Republic of Moldova. After my graduation in psychology, I started working in the human resource department for a financial company. At that moment, I started to take pictures inspired by the beauty that the surrounding nature could offer to us; that activity was a great escape from my daily routine. When I came to Key West, my photography journey became more fascinating, as I was surrounded by the ocean, and water became mostly present in my photography as the subject, often combined with elements of human activity.

Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve in Alaska is the most remote national park in the U.S, with no roads. It remains virtually unchanged except by the forces of nature. These images are part of my journey into the Arctic Circle, exploring this majestic and pristine American National Park — one that will soon be opened up for industrial mining. This is a last glimpse of the endangered landscape.

Desert Portraits

Desert Portraits

I’ve been photographing the deserts of the UAE for over 5 years and in this time many of the locations I’ve visited have radically changed. Many of the trees and shrubs that once stood have their roots exposed to the sun or are buried by the ever-changing windswept desert landscape. Unbearable summer heat mixed with almost freezing evening temperatures in the winter months, the consistent sandblasting strips the bark off the majority of young trees. These ‘desert portraits’ offer a glimpse in time of plant species fighting for survival in one of the world’s harshest environments. Anthony incorporates a minimalistic approach within his photography and this simplicity shifts our perspective so the imagery is less about actual place and more about emotional state. In his photographs he uses negative space and an ethereal aesthetic to provide the viewer with a sense of serenity and calm, sharing the emotions of the moments he captures. His post-production style offers pastel expressionism to further sooth the soul, offering the viewer the opportunity of escape into the purest essence of solitude.
