Wildlife Photographer of the Year Portfolio 17 by Rosamund Kidman Cox
This is one of the most outstanding collections of nature photographs you will find, representing the work of more than 100 professional and amateur photographers from 22 countries. It comprises all the winning and commended photographs from the 2007 Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition - the most prestigious event of its kind in the world - selected by an international panel of judges out of 32,300 entries from 78 countries. The range of subjects and styles is diverse - from abstract nature images to animal behaviour and portraits to environmental reportage. Together they celebrate the splendour, drama and variety of life on Earth. Each is accompanied by a memorable caption that tells the story of how and why the shot was taken.
