Heike Odermatt - Eye


A close portrait of a Black-browed Albatross I photographed on the steep coast at Saunders Island. For me, the Albatross is a very special bird: an elegant airplane and a graceful, lovely and clumsy friend on land. I found some characteristics of the albatross: stamina, faithful, independent, graceful, calm, open-minded, lenient, successful, enduring.

    This is simply beautiful. It captures the grace and beauty of the creature in such a simplistic and clean shot.
