I thought I was pretty cool for getting a shot of a mother and baby rhino from an elephant’s back in Chitwan Jungle when I visited Nepal until I saw the amazing photography of Mario Moreno. His wildlife images are absolutely stunning and he gets dangerously close to animals that would make me drop my camera! The selection here shows his brilliant command of photography at dusk, capturing the most perfect silhouettes of some of the most gorgeous animals on the planet. Moreno has been a professional photographer since 1995 and has always had a fascination with wildlife. His breathtaking photos have been featured in numerous photography and travel publications and even got him into the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.
According to Moreno:
The last 12 years of my life have been an amazing visual journey exploring the African continent with an intense photographic passion. From the great plains of the Serengeti, the floodplains of the Okavango or the harsh lands of the Kalahari to the summit of Kilimanjaro …. I have searched for the “ Perfect Moment “. A moment where everything comes together … Light, Timing and Emotions that create a memorable and forever lasting scene.
I think it’s obvious with this collection that Mario Moreno has discovered numerous “Perfect Moments” and his portfolio on 500px reveals hundreds more! See more of his images on MarioMorenoPhotography.com and follow him on Facebook. Prints can be purchased on PhotoBox.
