Beauty of Nature

The Wildlife Photography exhibition at the Baltic Art Gallery in the coastal city of Koszalin comprises several dozen photographs by 58 photographers from 18 countries that were singled out for praise in Wildlife Photographer of the Year competitions in 2002-2007. This annual competition is held by BBC Wildlife Magazine and the Natural History Museum in London.

German photographer Theo Allofs has captured the beauty of the shoreline in Kimberley, Australia. He took photos from a plane during the rainy season. In this way he managed to zoom in on a large expanse of land from a bird's eye view. "All the time I just hoped I wouldn't fall out of the plane," Allofs says.

Allofs has also photographed the Victoria Regia, the world's largest water lily, found in the Amazon delta. "Its strongly scented blossoms attract not only insects but also fish, which spring out of the water to snatch its petals," Allofs says. He has also taken an exceptional photo of a raven at sunset in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Australian photographer Tom Putt has zeroed in on the trunk of a primeval eucalyptus in Australia, presumably several hundred years old, which has survived rampant fires in the region.

The exhibition also features pictures by Polish photographers Renata Kosińska and Marek Kosiński.

The exhibition features pictures of nature in all its forms including landscapes, wild animals and amazing plants. There is no horror or drama-just the beauty and admiration for the charm of nature.

Koszalin, Baltic Art Gallery, 105 Zwycięstwa St., until March 2.
