On my wife’s birthday we planned a trip to Manali, a hill station which is located in Himachal Pradesh – North India. While moving towards our hotel we discovered a Bird Park on the road side. At one shot she asked driver to stop and got down from car and moved towards the park. Once we entered we saw small cute amazing colorful different shades of birds kept in cage. In each cage there were 2 birds. Only in one cage there were 4 birds. One bird was inside her shelter and other were seeing her. All were talking to each other but were not happy. They were stretching their hands to fly but were unable. This moved me, how such small beautiful creatures are able to express their feeling to each other by ignoring who ever was watching them. This touched me a lot and thought to capture this feeling of their no FREEDOM.

Though Iguanas are mainly natives of Mexico, Central America, Fiji, Tonga, and the Caribbean, but I was fortunate enough to capture one in the Emirates Zoo Park in Al Rabha City, Abu Dhabi, UAE. A species of Herbivorous, Iguanas are calm and quite in nature. During breeding season, the heads and bodies of males become covered with a rusty-colored wash, turning to deep, bright orange when they are excited, especially on courting and territorial display.

Today he repents as to what he had missed and what he could have captured if he knew photography that time. His first exposure to the photography world was in the year 2012 when on his Son Aaryan’s first birthday one of his friend brought a DSLR for shooting and finally he got himself a Nikon D7000 by April 2012

His main inspiration is his wife and thus he is even thinking of leaving his mainstream regular Job and start full time in Photography as a Photographer.

Award Score: 67 (Value 12, Clarity 12, Composition 17, Style 13, Skill 13)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Wildlife Photography
Photograph Location: Grasland just outside Hellevoetsluis, Netherlands

Photographer: Rob van der Waal (Hellevoetsluis, The Netherlands.) Registered
Rob van der Waal was born in 1957 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. His father was a passionate photographer who taught him the basics of photography. When he was 7 years old, his family already had a darkroom on the top floor of their family house. His dad was on the edge of what was possible those days, using 2 Leica M3 bodies, and was developing black/white and color films by himself and with some modifications to his equipment, created images of 40x60cm. Apart from his father’s touch and some workshops, Rob van der Waal is an autodidact. With reading, listening and most of all just doing, he developed his creative and photography skills. To briefly summarize his style in photography; pure and honest are the key words that come close. He loves to be out in nature and enjoys the space, light and birds, and on those frequent trips his camera is his companion. He believes, some interest build into his DNA is “maritime”. It’s his preference to be at the waterfront, the sea, and close to ships and its related activity. He feels fortunate to live close to Rotterdam, a harbor area in the Netherlands. He will always respect nature and animals. He hopes more people will support this principle. What triggers him in photography is that, it is never done, complete or finish, as there is always a way to playing with the light and the moment, which gives the opportunity in another way to tell the story!
