About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Such a beautiful creature. How wonderful to have been up close to it.

    It must have been so awesome to see such creatures in their natural habitat 🙂


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Yes, it was, although over time it became a part of normal life, of the normal, natural landscape. But I always felt a vast fondness for elephants, and I always loved gazing deeply into the cold, amber eyes of the Big Cats. And then, being a geologist, there was the sad but truly exciting thought that I was witnessing the last remnants of the great mammal faunas of the Pleistocene and earlier ages. I was of course primarily a birder in those days, but it was impossible not to be thrilled and impressed by the large beasts all around.

    A classic shot, Adrian.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
