It is a popular belief that the predator cats of Africa do not swim and avoid water. Several extremely rainy years in the mountains that feed Botswana’s Okavango Delta region have shown that to be a great misconception. Water has overflowed the usual waterways of the world’s largest inland delta to cover grasslands and roadways. Yet, the wildlife of Botswana continues to thrive.

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was “Shadows and Form,” images where the shadow plays an important role in the composition and point of view of the photographer. Shadows can redefine form, create volume and space, and can both echo and abstract form. Readers responded with images of landscapes, architecture, and even portraiture. In all cases the play of light and dark, of...

The Beach. Aquamarine sea. Azure sky. Beige sand. A seashell. A seagull. No people. No boats. The Beach. This photo was taken at Miami Beach, Florida, in the heart of the tourist season. Even in the midst of crowded civilization, one can find nature if you look for it. The Beach.

Wandering around at sunrise in my new neighborhood, I came upon this wonderful pier with three men fishing. The sunrise, which silhouetted the fishermen, was behind the island of Sister Keys. The haze and colors are just as they were that early morning. I loved the symmetry of the men and the pier and their reflections in the water—they were not posed. Thinking how great it would be if they...

Camcorders still have their value for shooting event-driven occasions, like sports games or recitals, and have zoom ranges that can reach an impressive 78x zoom. However, for more spur-of-the-moment video opportunities, Panasonic offers several...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was “Night Moves: Time and Motion” and we asked readers to send in images that incorporated not only nighttime photography, which is challenging enough, but also a sense of movement through the frame. Of course, working in low light usually requires a longer shutter speed, so the challenge became creating a sense of motion through the dark...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was “Light Patterns: Cast Shadows,” and this turned out to be one of the most difficult for us to choose as we received so many excellent entries. The use of shadows in images allows the photographer to bring enhanced form and content into scenes where other lighting conditions might have been less dramatic and graphic. Shadows not only allow us...
