Oriol Alamany - Following Mom


Kelp Goose (Chloephaga hybrida) chicks following their mother at the beach in Sea Lion island, Falkland Islands. For years I dreamed of travelling to the Falkland Islands. But the trip was very expensive and I had to postpone it again and again. Eventually the opportunity came in 2010 and for two weeks I travelled and photographed at several of its islands. But when I came back home the daily work has not allowed me to work on the material I obtained there: thousands of pictures that I still have to edit, identify and process. This is one of them. Hope I can work on them soon!

    We will be waiting for these pictures!!! The quality of this is to anticipate that many beautiful pictures of Falkland Islands will be shown to the world by you. I love the light and the simple story. Undoubtedly, a cool image!
