The calendar can be ordered by dropping a message on FB, or by clicking on the following e-mail link firstname.lastname@example.org
The prize is 29.90 CHF shipment Switzerland included. Might be just a little bit more for shipment within Europe.
I have submitted again 3 pictures taken in Africa and this one has been selected. There are many excellent pictures submitted in this weekly contest, and I always wonder about the criteria of selection. I am very happy that my majestic elephant bull has made it into the weekly selection. I think my picture works mainly as a good ambassador to defend the case of ban on ivory trade and to enforce anti-poaching.

The Crane Centre is a nice spot to take pictures of the Japanese cranes. There are many photographers outside, but there is enough space to put up the tripod. Inside the centre it is cosy and warm, good Japanese fast food, a toilet, etc. A good place to warm up the frozen feet and hands. Outside there was good fresh snow, a strong wind was blowing the snow over the plain.
