It’s all about nature in Costa Rica. Approximately one quarter of the land is under nature conservation. We are talking about tropical rainforests, volcanoes, and cloud forests. By means of trials, adventurous cruises, or by a walk on hanging bridges through the treetops this incredible diverse nature can be admired, often with amazing ease. Many animals are easy to approach and observe. Imagine yourself sitting in a little boat just a few metres away from a spectacled caiman, with brutal apes in the trees above your head, with big Iquana’s on a paradise beach, and with colorful parrots flying against a wonderful blue sky. Edwin will take you on a colorful journey through several National Parks of Costa Rica.

Fauna in Antarctica is not very diverse but nevertheless abundant. Large penguin colonies, several species of seals such as the Weddel seal ( Leptonychotes wedell) and the Leopard seal ( Hydrurga leptonyx).

Dancing sifaka’s, bizarre colored chameleons, and perfect camouflaged Leaf-tailed Gecko’s…

Once you are able to feel close to the world of the little, a wonderful world will reveal itself to you. A world that is absolutely worthy being photographed. Still the trick is to make a fine composition in this multitude of tiny details on a few square centimeters. During this presentation Edwin shows his view on macro photography.
