2013 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards

Launches October 18th at the Natural History Museum London

Penguins_full_for_exchange

Love photography? Love wildlife? Then this is one exhibition you just have to check out. From capturing herds of big horn sheep in Canada’s Banff National Park, to detailing the tragic story of how the growing demand for rhino horn is now threatening the extinction of this majestic breed, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition covers the beauty, wonder, tragedy and sheer remarkableness of the world’s wild animals.

But don’t be fooled, these images don’t come easily. 2012’s winner Paul Nicklen captured his winning shot ‘Bubble-jetting emperors’ by waiting motionless under the Antarctic ice, breathing through a snorkel, as the emperor penguins charged upwards, mouths full of icefish for their chicks, leaving a crisscross of bubble trails in their wake. Fingers frozen, Paul’s framing and focus for the shot had to be instinctive, and fortunately his freezing experience paid off.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013 exhibition opens at the Natural History Museum in London on October 18th and will then tour all over the world, so be sure to check it out. In the meantime, here’s just a small selection of the stunning images from the 2012 awards:
