A photo(from me) without an animal in it. Anything is possible.

I realize this one is stretching the theme of "nature photographs" a little, but I just found this site containing brilliant satellite photographs of earth & just had to post at least one of the images. Wow!
(If this turns out to be one of those images which "disappears", you'll find it & quite a few more in the link below. Well worth a look.)

Bogda Mountains - The Turpan Depression, nestled at the foot of China’s Bogda Mountains, is a strange mix of salt lakes and sand dunes, and is one of the few places in the world that lies below sea level.

These are iconic images that touch upon the documentary and almost abstract art.

@djjd62,
Thanks, djjd, what an interesting fellow. Urban (& other) landscapes.

I went to the "Australia" link (of course! Smile )

Wow. Even if not nature, in the traditional sense, his images are stunning!

This is in Kalgoorlie, WA :

@msolga,
see the documentary if you can, it's not an easy watch at times (the recycling towns in china that have poisoned themselves and the shipbreakers in bangledesh are particularly disturbing), but it's an interesting look at the world we live in

@djjd62,
On the link you provided, djjd?
Or a documentary as in film?

Just watched the video on the link: Fascinated stuff. Fascinating focus his work: the influence of oil in our lives, through affected landscapes -urban & other. The things we don't usually see, but caused by our dependence on oil. Such images!

Thank you!
