Diary of a nature photographer
Study, monitoring, research and photography about the Nature

Atlantic Puffin

The Atlantic puffins are birds extraordinarily beautiful as they were funny for their landing, but very fast and agile in the air so much that I could not shoot them in flight.

Today is the peregrine day

Today is the peregrine day, so I wake up at 3.15 to be in the blind at 5.45. Unfortunately the blind is about 35/40 minutes of walk from the car park, which is about 45/50 minutes from my house. The path for arriving to the blind it isn't so simple because it's easy to get lost, especially in the dark, ma with a gps software we can arrive without any problem (fatigue apart because it's all up).

The hawk who could not read

In the Oristano area there is a pond where 3 or 4 osprey (Pandion haliaetus) arrive each year to winter in Sardinia from northern Europe, with a much less rigid climate. As a nature photographer it's not the first time I'm going to see and photograph this hawk (here's the page with all my photos), but I just wanted to enjoy a quiet day inside the Nature and admire the evolution of this magnificent raptor.

Su Stampu Su Turrunu waterfall

In the heart of Sardinia there's a place where the Nature has expressed itself in a unique way. This place is the Su Stampu 'e Su Turrunu, where you can find a very beautifull waterfall coming from a hole in the rock. The waterfall fall in a little lake and then it creates a small river that flows downstream. The environment where the waterfall is located is a little gorge where the water flows creating some little crystal pools, inside rocks and trees like a magic place.
To arrive at the waterfall is quite simple, and if you have an off road car you could avoid the main and long path up to the parking, otherwise you have to leave tha car on the road, and then follow the signals walking into the Addolì wood. The distance it isn't big and you can arrive at destination in about 30/40 minutes on foot from the car, instead of 10 minutes if you have an off road car.
