GENIUS LOCI finally we start! A nature photography blog where discover a new picture every day. Fourteen contributors each one from his own area, from the far edges of Italy and Europe. I will contribute with pictures from Andalucía (Spain), and sometimes also from my native area: Salento (Italy).

New award: “Mención de honor” in Montphoto

MONTPHOTO, International Competition of Nature Photography: one finalist picture in the category “Environmental report” and 6 more selected ones in different categories. Check out the galleries here. The picture depicts a captive Chamelion imprisoned in a cage in the Marrakech market. You can see it in my gallery “Only one planet“. I hope this picture will raise more awareness on the illegal wildlife trade that takes place in Morocco.
