Frans Lanting

Frans Lanting, born 1951, is a Dutchman regularly hailed as one of the great photographers of our time. Who could disagree?

This photograph of stromalites (fossils of ancient algal mats) in Shark Bay, Australia is one of my favorites.

One thing that really impresses me about Lanting is the way his rain forest photographs make the jungle look exciting and inviting from ground level, something that is actually quite hard to do.

Many, many more wonderful pictures at his web site.
