Colourful natural world

The Natural World

Capture a moment, big or small, and pay attention to the lines and curves produced by nature.

I love nature shots. From big, fluffy clouds in a blue sky, gorgeous sunsets and sunrises to beaches, mountain ranges and lush forests. Nature produces the most amazing colours, sometimes even when you don’t expect it. The two photos I’m sharing today were taken at the Botanical Park near Chania, on the island of Crete. This beautiful male peacock was really putting on a show for us and I managed to capture several photos of his large, iridescent train.

Did you know that there are white peacocks, too? They have a genetic mutation that is known as leucism, causing a lack of pigments. I’d love to see one of those in real!
