Nature Photographers

I didn't have anyone or anything specific to look up today, so I just typed 'nature photography' into google. The first thing I found was an online nature photography magazine. It's kind of like Walmart it has everything under one roof. There are articles discussing gear, techniques and locations to shoot. It has an online store to buy gear and weekly contests.
The photo I posted is the current weekly winner. Sorry the image is tiny I had to copy a thumbnail because they won't let you copy the larger images. The photo was taken by John Williams from Battle Ground, WA. He shot it with a Nikon D80 with a Nikon 50mm f/1.8. Dave won't like this, but it is actually a combination of three photos two at 2 sec at f/16 and one at 1/8 sec at f/13. He didn't say why he used two photos at the same setting. How he achieved it is beside the point because it's a nice photo(s) and you should go to the site and get a better view than the thumbnail I posted here. There are galleries with tons of other photos to get lost in for awhile as well.
Nature Photographers is a cool website with a lot of useful information and reviews. They also offer tips and online courses to further your knowledge and abilities as a photographer. If nothing else it has a lot of cool pictures from various photographers to peruse.
