Very proud to show our pictures!
Today we’ve got a very nice news – 4 of our pictures are among the finalists of the 8th international photo contest “Live nature of Altai”. More than 600 works were submitted to the contest and the jury chose 72 to display. The opening of the exhibition of the best pictures was today in Barnaul in the Museum of history, literature, arts and culture.
The contest is dedicated to wild nature of Big Altai, especially to reserved areas and nature parks that a few people are destined to visit. The pictures show landscapes, rare and endangered animals and work of people for preserving nature.
All 4 pictures were made during our trips – 1 by Yevgenia and 3 by Jaap. Yevgenia was very lucky to see a very rare Sailugem bear. Jaap had an opportunity to watch in May fantastically beautiful mating rituals of cranes. Besides, in August he managed to come rather close to mountain sheep where young lambs were grazing with their moms. And the 4th picture is the view to one of our most favourite places in Altai – Bayan-Chagan valley, the territory of Sailugem national park. It is the main image of our site, by the way.
The exhibition will be held till 1st of February. And after that during the year it will become mobile and will travel in cities and villages of Altai. We are happy and proud that we can show all the beauty of Altai and the miracle of observing wild animals in nature to so many people.
