Seljalandsfoss waterfall, with pink water lit by the warm autumn sunsetSeljalandsfoss SunsetSeljalandsfoss is a spectacular waterfall, which you can walk right around, and pick your favourite view. This was mine, and I took it just before the sun dipped below the horizon. The curtain of water is lit pink like the clouds by the sunset, and the cave behind is illuminated too. A spectacular sight.

Crazy as it seems, my Flickr account just ticked over one million photo views. That’s staggering really. I don’t read too much into stats, but this feels like the kind of milestone I would never have expected to reach a few years ago. I received a huge boost in this respect, from my Seljalandsfoss Sunset photo, which hit Explore last September, and was shared all around the web. Things have been very busy on Flickr ever since then.

Anyway here we are. I was thinking of something to do to mark the occasion, and I figured I’d try to spread the good vibes to my friends and contacts on Flickr, who encourage & inspire me to keep raising my game. I genuinely enjoy checking my contacts’ photo list, to see what everyone’s been up to. I check it most days, and there’s always something interesting and original to see. I particularly like to see a photo in the stream and be able to guess who took it – which is great, as it means I’m hanging around with people who are developing an identifiable style, just as I aspire to do.

So, with this in mind, the following is an randomly-ordered list of 50 Nature & Wildlife Photographers on Flickr that I follow, and recommend you check out also.

Huge apologies to those I didn’t have space for here. It was very hard to pick out just a quarter of the people I follow in order to keep this list at a sensible length. But I suggest that anyone takes the time to browse through my full list of contacts here, for more inspiring and interesting Flickr photographers.

If, for any reason, you’d rather not appear on this list, just drop me a FlickrMail.

For me, Flickr remains the best social network for photography, and I’ve found a very welcoming community on there. They’ve recently updated the interface for a more modern look, which has reduced the emphasis on interaction somewhat. That’s a shame, but it remains a popular and well-liked platform, with a user-base that is passionate about photography, and shares a common goal to put their own photos out there and enjoy the photos from others.
