Thomas says:

After spending few days in Borneo, I got this frame stuck in my mind. Firstly, to get this shot, I selected a tree that was located in the water so that I could get a good reflection of the sky and its leaves on the tree on the water surface. It created a mirror effect that made the photo look upside down. Then I climbed up on the tree and waited for hours. This is a regular path for the orangutans to cross to a small island on the other side. I was sure to get this frame if I would wait patiently. Hence I waited and waited for a long time and finally, I got this beautiful frame. This frame confuses the viewer at the first glance and that makes the photo unique. It was indeed a tough task but the end result paid it off in double fold.

About Thomas:

India

My name is Thomas Vijayan. I’m basically an architect hailing from Kerala, India also known as “God’s Own Country”. I was raised in Bangalore and now settled in Canada with my family. I have traveled all the seven continents for photography, which is my passion but not my profession.

To me there is nothing called “perfection” in any photography. Every click to me is an experience, the more I click the more I learn something new. I give more importance to quality than clicking pictures in quantity. I love nature and I never get bored by staying in nature for long. For me, photography is a combination of my love for nature, travel, practice, patience, passion, care, friends and gear.  More than anything else, it’s a blessing from my creator to be able to witness the special moments in nature. My love for photography has got me many awards including Wildlife Photographer of the Year (NHM) and also made me ambassador for Nikon ​in the Middle East & Africa from 2015 until now.

From my little experience I can say that we can learn a lot spending time with our Mother Nature. We will start seeing the importance of the life cycle of these tangible living things which belong to this beautiful world. It can also help us become better persons, who would then understand the necessity of respecting nature and maintaining the ecosystem. For this same realization I would like to use my passion for photography as a medium to bring this hidden wildlife beauty of nature to the common man so that they start loving and respecting Mother Nature and stop exploiting it.
