Creative Visions of Nature Winner: "Dewdrops"
Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, 2006


This image might look out-of-this-world, but it was taken from inside a darkened warehouse filled with rubble, says Juhani Kosonen of Finland.

Captured using a magnifying lens, the photo shows the effect of outside light on droplets of dew in a windowpane.

"When I look at this picture I think of the universeof planets and stars," Kosonen said.

An engineer by trade, Kosonen treats photography as a hobby.

"If I get something, that's nice, but if not, I don't mind," he said. "There's no pressure."
