Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Natural History Museum visits Leicestershire

Snibston Discovery Park near Coalville is always a great place to visit – especially until the end of October 2010. They are hosting a fabulous photographic exhibition from the Natural History Museum.

The stunning displays of wildlife photographs from around the world are truly amazing – these pictures just can’t do the display justice – but they may give a quick taste.

This is the competition which was in the news recently – the article shows this is ‘the world’s most prestigious photography competition of it’s kind’. It is certainly incredible.

If you do visit, be sure to take a good look at the Young Photographer category – the winning picture is breathtaking. (The light in the museum meant that I couldn’t take a picture to do the work jusice).

The rest of the museum is certainly worth a visit – one of the earliest jet engines – along with a great display showing the development of PowerJets in Leicestershire.

There’s a great exhibition outside – along with colliery visits. We got to the museum a bit late in the day, and the weather was a bit on the grim side, so the working beam engine was an unexpected treat!

Here’s a link to the museum’s own site – well worth a trip.

      Hello Roberto
      Thanks for your comments.
      The pictures on your website are truly breathtaking. They would be really useful for primary school children for their topics. Would you be happy to share low resolution copies of your pictures (good enough for in school on-screen presentations but not high enough quality to print?
      I’m sure you’ll get lots of fans – and, who knows, some orders
