The post a couple weeks back called Animals with Personality was kind of fun, so now, equal time: Who’s up for a world tour of birds? Click to view them larger, from the Birds Gallery at Earthphotos.com.

This guy lives in one of the floating villages around Tonle Sap, Cambodia.

If I remember this guy right, he’s from a falconry in Scotland.

This ostrich just dropped by our chalet in Sossusvlei, Namibia.

Good-looking guy from Antigua, Guatemala.

It’s a long way down for this cockatoo in New South Wales, Australia.

Crowned cranes from the Tierpark Hellabrunn, Munich, Germany.

Pretty sure this guy is from the same Scottish falconry.

Three Quick Photos from Prague

Good morning from Warsaw, just in via overnight train.

Yes, we have hundreds of those ‘beautiful, magical Prague’ photos, like this first one, and we’ll go through and buff and polish them all over the next month or so, but I’m partial to some less mainstream stuff, like these last two. That’s a puppet shop in the middle and at bottom, the crazy ceiling of the Church of St. Nicholas. We’ll save them all here on EarthPhotos.com for now.

EarthPhotos.com Announces Digital Downloads

GetAnyPhotoRightNow2

Today I'm happy to announce Digital Downloads on EarthPhotos.com. Just about all of the 18,691 photos on EarthPhotos may now be downloaded immediately. Two sizes are on offer.

You can buy a Web Size image, roughly 640×480 pixels in size, or 0.3 megapixels. This is suitable for web sharing on social sites like Facebook. Or you can buy a 1Mpix image, roughly 1 megapixel in size. These photos are for your personal, and not commercial use (Read Personal License). The 1 Mpix download is roughly 816×1224 pixels, about big enough to print an 8×12.

And we want to help with your commercial application. We're proud of our lion photo in Afar Magazine. It remains the Most Popular Photo on EarthPhotos.com, as voted by users. A couple of weeks back, we placed a photo on a kids' show for German TV. All these commercial applications are different, so please talk with us about what you need.
