AFRICAN ELEPHANT GIANT TEETH

African Elephant giant teeth, the tusks, the ivory! This elephant black and white photo was sitting a long time on my hard drive in colour. I did not forget it, I just needed to get into the mood how I want to process it. The colour version was ready for a quite a while, it was just not an African elephant photo for colour at all. There was something missing for this giant teeth of a great African elephant. A few weeks back I was stumbling over this image again when a client was asking for such images. Hmm... I brought the colour version into my Photoshop and looked for the missing something. The black and white version I really do love.

This Elephant image is available as a large format black and white fine art print, wall deco canvas wraps or Aluminium Dibond amongst other prints finishes - contact me for pricing options: anette@anettemossbacher.com

African Elephants Having Their Fun

These two African Elephants were fighting quite a lot and had their fun with it. On some images I can just see how they were smiling. Yes call me nuts, but it looks like this. Their face expression and all. The gentle giants roaming the African continent.
Enjoy

I made a Lattice in +PhotoShelter you will find in there a selection of many Wildlife Photographers using Photoshelter. This is not a commercial for Photoshleter this is just for you to see more great Elephant images from many different photographers.
Enjoy: http://www.photoshelter.com/lattice/board/African-Elephants/B0000EpS9YyStAEU

SUMMER IS HERE

Ghost crab enjoying the big waves at the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. This image I have taken last year on the Lady Elliott Island south of the Great Barrier Reef. What a treat this Island is. Nada 5 star crap, who needs this anyway? I don't. The island is famous for it's diving grounds, even having a dip is such a bliss in the big lagoon. You snorkel and sea turtles pass you, even a shark came by!!! HELP HELP :))) The ghost crabs were much fun to watch. 1 day I dedicated to the "Wanna-Be Kiwi". That bird looked like a Kiwi, walked all over the island, but was very shy. Our son gave that bird the name "Wanna-Be Kiwi". Image will follow soon :)

Enjoy

FATE SEALED

I got yesterday an email that I have won in PX3 - Prix De La Photographie Paris - First Prize in Travel Category; Second Prize in Nature/Wildlife and 2 more Third Prizes in Nature & Wildlife Category. On top  9 Honorable Mentions. Geees, this was a great email :))

This seal cub won third prize in PX3, it was tangled up in a fishing net. Sadly this happens all over the world that all kinds of marine animals get tangled in lost or just over board thrown fishing nets, or eat the plastic they find in the sea!!

Photos I Wish I Had Taken: Anette Mossbacher by +Susan Portnoy 
Found this blog post on my way....
I was looking through Anette Mossbacher’s portfolio the other day for inspiration and came across this image. Jealousy ripped through me like a knife.

First I was jealous that she was able to see such an amazing moment. I mean, a white polar bear snuggled up on top of black rocks underneath a full moon! What are the chances of that? One in a million? Two?

After the first wave of jealousy hit me, the second, even more powerful than the first, gripped me good. Not only did she see it but she nailed the photo!

I did a little digging and according to an interview I read, she and a few other photographers were sharing a zodiac, forcing her to stand up to keep their lenses out of the image.

So lets recap: Not only did the stars align to place a white polar bear on black rocks underneath a full moon in front of her, she managed to land the shot while floating in a boat…In the dark. I can’t.

It’s a gorgeous image.

I think I’ve said enough.

Thank you very much +Susan Portnoy

Sweet Memory of an Wild African Rhino in Africa or “Once upon a time” there ‘were’ many African Rhinos roaming the African continent! These wild animals were strolling in peace through the unending vastness of the African Landscape without any real predators.

Danke Asante sana
Warum befindet sich auf meiner Seite ein Bild
von 1981 weil ich bei meiner letzten Safari
in Kenia keines mehr in freier Wildbahn gesehen habe!
Wildgehege wie im Tsavo-West zähle ich nicht zur freien Wildbahn!
Ich gehe auch nicht zum Sheldrick-Trust um Elefanten zu sehen!

RED & BLUE

The famous red sand dunes in Namibia early morning. This is one of them with lots of tracks from tourists climbing this dune. I call that "sand shoeing" it is harder to climb such sand dunes then walking in deep snow. I climbed a few and really, my gosh, with the camera backpack on your back it is quite a "military" drill :)))
The next challenge is to get afterwards all dust of your gear, not to mention the buckets of sand you have in your shoes!

This African Landscape picture is available as a large format print, wall deco canvas wraps or Aluminium Dibond prints amongst other print finishes - contact me for pricing options: anette@anettemossbacher.com or go to my website, see below the link.

I made a little blog post, if anyone is interested to read about African landscape pictures I took early mornings: http://www.anettemossbacher.com/african-landscape-pictures-taken-early-morning/

Introduction

WHO:

Nature and Wildlife Photographer Anette Mossbacher travels extensively photographing nature and wildlife in unique, dramatic locations. She specializes in capturing wildlife in the natural world, environmental subjects, landscape and travel photography. She has won several awards for her inspirational wildlife and nature images.

WHAT:

Anette's galleries include fine art reproductions in color or black and white. With an extensive and thought-provoking portfolio, you have the opportunity to purchase prints and stock photos of her nature images for your home, offices or commercial use.

Do you need a professional photographer with expertise and experience for your brief ? My experience includes wildlife in the natural world, environmental subjects, landscape and travel photography. I am familiar working under the direction of editors according to their briefs. I am available for worldwide commissions and photography assignments. If you wish to enquire about photography assignments or stock photos, then please contact me for further details

WHERE:

Anette’s nature and wildlife photography takes her around the world: from the unique natural world of Europe to the untamed African bush; the dense rainforests of Asia, to the starkness of the Australian outback; to the Arctic wilderness - home of the Svalbard polar bears. As a nature and wildlife photographer, travelling around the world presents endless opportunities to capture nature and wildlife images in a variety of situations! I journey alone through countries in a 4×4 Jeep, by boat or in any other vehicle which is needed to afford me the opportunity to visit some of the most remote places in the vastness of those countries.
