Tiny People, Big Places
  • Three Cliffs Bay, Wales, UK
    This is a great spot on the Gower Peninsula on the Welsh coast. As happens often, this project required some patience. My friend and fellow photographer Samuel Ryan walked out into my shot to take in the view from the cliff edge. I waited for him to take up a placement in the frame as the last hour of light burst through the clouds with a warm evening glow.

The crocodile and damselfly
Damselfly sits in crocodile's open mouth, Jakarta, Indonesia - Mar 2016
*Full story:
A green damselfly decides to rest on a dangerous perch - a young crocodile's open jaw. The female crocodile was sunning itself when a brave insect decided to land on the reptile's head before moving down to its snout. Despite the crocodile opening its mouth as she changed position, the damselfly used it as a chance to explore and climbed inside before making a quick escape. Graphic designer Kurit Afsheen spotted the crocodile lying on a log in Tanjung Pasir, Indonesia when the damselfly flew close by. The 34-year-old, of Jakarta, Indonesia, said: "The baby crocodile was about 30cm long and two months old. She was lying down when a damselfly came. "I do not think the insect realised he had landed on something that could potentially eat him! "The crocodile was only disrupted by the damselfly when it passed through his eyes. PHOTO EDITOR:
