The nature around the house wants to tell, the extraordinary and wonderful life that we have around our home and of which we often do not notice its presence.
Walking and listening in silence, Anne, through her images, discovered the habits and curiosities of her "neighbors" who live their "discreet" life in a residue of the plain forest, consisting of a fragment of the vast forest that in Roman era extended from the Livenza river to the Isonzo river.
Anne is an amateur landscape, nature photographer, based in the Udine (North-East, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia). I was born and brought up in the Northern Estonia countryside. For her, photography is not just a hobby, it has become a way of balancing life. She prefer photographing the natural world – spending time outdoors makes me feel close to the roots of life. In constant search for those fleeting moments of magic that turn our world into something extraordinary.
In his images she strive to reflect the atmosphere, feeling, and sheer wonderment that our natural world evokes within us. Some of his works have been published in various national and international magazines. He is a member of the AFNI since 2013 (Italian Association nature photographers). Contributing Photographer at PHOTOFVG.IT since 2012

The contest "Magical Nature" is hosted by Association of Slovenian Nature Photographers (ZNFS). The contest is open to amateur as well as professional photographers from around the world. One of the aims of the contest is, to receive stunning photographs of the nature, to show to the people biodiversity, they have never seen before. Of course, photographs from this exhibition do not show the whole volume of biodiversity, fare from it. But they reveal some of the extremely rarely seen species, natural moments and phenomenon. And this exceptionality is the underlying theme of all selected photographs. Human – nature relationship is part of biodiversity too. It is presented with photographs from »Man and Nature« category. Clearly, sometimes also shockingly, they show us the whole extent of our connection to the nature.
More than 4300 photographs from 264 authors and 46 countries arrived to the contest. The best photographer, according to a four-member jury, received a title »Nature Photographer of the Year 2018« and the best Slovenian photographer a title »Slovenian Nature Photographer of the Year 2018«.
The Association was founded on April, 2017 in Ljubljana, Slovenia where it also has its seat.
The aims and purpose of the association is to promote and popularise the author's nature photography and to create a positive attitude towards nature with photographs of nature in society.
By organizing photographic competitions, exhibitions, projections, and lectures among photographers, to stimulate the interest and popularisation of nature photography, while at the same time enabling education for members of the association as well as for the wider community.

Knowing the free flowing water in our Friuli Venezia Giulia, discovering and understanding the intimate connection with its inhabitants, beauty, symbolism and myth is, for us, an indispensable condition for this good to be available to future generations.
