“Curious Dragon”- Komodo Island, Indonesia – Will & Matt Burrard – Lucas – Featured Photographers

When we saw this image by the Burrard-Lucas brothers the Photobotos brothers were blown away.  You don’t get inches away from 10 foot lizards with killer saliva so we had to know how they did it.  These guys as you will see are not only great photographers, but are very clever in how they obtain them.    You can find them at http://www.burrard-lucas.com/

After checking out their Komodo dragon photos, hop over to their Giant Panda Expedition at http://blog.burrard-lucas.com/2011/10/giant-panda-tracking/. The photos are incredible.

Here is Lujo:

Cheer Up with Colors

Places Unknown

Yesterday was a beautiful day with temperatures around 60F, which overnight changed into rain and right now it is cold and grey, weather man predicting abut 4-6 inches of snow in North Carolina mountains and potential snow at lower elevations as well.

This is Blue Ridge Parkway’s Lin Cove Viaduct, snaking around Grandfather Mountain. Enjoy!
