A major snowstorm was passing through Toronto so I went down to a park along Lake Ontario where I know Cardinals and chickadees are regular residents. I brought along some sunflower seeds and expected the chickadees to be quite eager for a few handout. I didn't expect the cardinals to get as close as they did but I scattered some seeds along the ground and they come just a few feet away from me and it allowed me to get this picture and others like it!

This picture has been taken in the middle of the night, I was wondering through the city with no fixed direction. As soon as I stepped into the park I noticed that at that time, 2 am, it assumes a completely different look, almost a sinister look. In this image I was captured by the contrast between the deep dark areas and the illuminated part of the scenes, with the road-path that disappear just behind the tree.

It was a newly raised land in the river Padma, where I photographed this White-Tailed Stonchat, a visitor bird that comes as seasonal migration of bird that we are blessed with every year in winter. It has black head, white collar and bright rufous chest patch. The back and wings are dark, with white on wing coverts and rump.

As I was wandering the the Marais, I came upon this signage. It is always a difficult choice to know which direction to take in Paris. However, which ever way you decide to go, you will be rewarded with something remarkable. Paris is very generous in what she has to offer.

The numerous amount of trips around the Shapla Chottor sometimes may prove to be a step closer to success for many. This photo was taken from the tallest building of Dhaka.

On my way to Lourinhã from Lisbon I noticed from several miles away that the Atlantic was coloring red. As I approached I noticed it was pouring from a river. The cause for this coloration is torrential rains the night before. Normally this water is clear.

The Overberg (the Afrikaans word for "over the mountains") lies due east of Cape Town on the opposite side of Sir Lowry's Pass which runs over the Hottentots Holland Mountain Range. It lies between the sea in the South and the Outeniqua Mountain range towards the north (seen at the back of this photograph) and is an agricultural food basket. Canola and wheat is planted throughout the area and this photograph was taken shortly after the harvest.

Here is one of my favorite subject, urban exploration. I shot this image in an abandoned factory close to Milan. The door was the only way to exit from the building; I was captured by the light of the midday sun that comes through.

This photo was taken in an apartment high in the mountains of Minas Gerais, just after a delicious lunch among friends. Walking unfocused in the balcony, I saw this gift of nature, and how could I miss shooting it then. Impossible! So I immortalized a beautiful sunset like this!

There were flowers all over the place, of all colors, sizes and shapes. These beautiful flowers in purple enchant me! Inside each of them there is a little white flower that gives all the tenderness.

A fellow hiker who was about to turn round the corner, seemed as if he was being gulped by the huge rock. One actually from behind can never get to see what is there on the other side of the bend. I didn't want to miss this frame especially with the presence of the human element in one corner.

This Brown Hawk Owl became my model at Kaptai National Park, when it went out for eating insects. It is a medium-sized owl with a hawk-like shape. With large yellow eyes, its upperparts are dark brown, with a barred tail.
