The eagle huntress
Location: West Mongolia
I wanted to document the “Future Generation” – boys who take their first steps in learning the hunting skills, boys who hold the tradition’s future in their bare hands Ashol Pan is the daughter of an experienced eagle hunter around Han Gohadok, which is south of Ulgii. She was perfect. I was amazed by her comfort and ease as she began handling the grand eagle. She was fearlessly carrying it on her hand and caressing it somewhat joyfully.

Oryx at the Dune Top
Location: Sossusvlei National Park, Sossusvlei, Namibia
In the afternoon, it was so hot at the bottom of the dune that the oryx ran to the dune top for coolness. When getting to the top , the oryx stopped and posed for me to capture a shot.

The Independence day
Location: Julesburg, Colorado, USA
While on storm chasing expeditions in the Tornado Alley in USA I have encountered many photogenic supercell storms. This photograph was taken while we were approaching the storm near Julesburg, Colorado on My 28th, 2013. The storm was tornado warned for more than one hour, but stayed an LP storm through all its cycles and never produced a tornado, just occasional brief funnels, large hail and some rain.

Great-white Egrets
Location: Kiskunság National Park, Hungary
Air battle of Great White Egrets in the National Park of Kiskunság, Hungary. Rivalry of the kin is frequent, even if there is no breeding season and they have enough food.

The Stripe
Location: Bernstorff Isofjord, Greenland
Sometimes you run across very special Icebergs with stripes in them. These are formed from cracks that are then filled with water and then frozen. As this is frozen water, they are clear without the normal air trapped from snow falling. These stripes produce amazing colorations as they reflect their surroundings and allow us to look into the heart of an Iceberg.

Let's Keep Open all the Windows
Location: Dhaka, Bangladesh
On the Victory Day of Bangladesh, 16 December, the local children who live near Runway are celebrating and waving flags while an aircraft is going to land in the airport. Photo taken from a staircase of a half-constructed building.

Ban Gioc Waterfall
Location: Cao Bang Province, Vietnam
This is the most beautiful waterfall in Northern Vietnamese province of Cao Bang. It is located in the border of Vietnam and China. Haft waterfall on the left photo is of Vietnam, the other side is of China

Penguins at Saint Andrews Bay
Location: Saint Andrews Bay, South Georgia Island
I was very excited to see thousands of King Penguins in this beautiful setting.

A adventurous surfer on Mars
Location: Palm Beach, New South Wales, Australia
The wave crashed on the sand and spread whole them into water. Painted the image like a sort of place in Mars.
