Boris by Richard Barry


Available to buy on…

Ningaloo WA, D80 50mm as far away as I could be without ruining the shot.

Big boy, very unsettling indeed.

Tweaked colours in Lightroom.

    now, if you could have just put your free hand up against it so we could have some idea of the scale….lol!

  • LOL Nadine! I was so incredibly afraid of Boris that using a 50mm lens was, in itself, a declaration of insanity.

    Let me tell you, Boris was big… If he had been seen in London roaming free, there would have been mass evacuations!

    EEeewwwww – you have named him well… he does look like a Boris, look at those black eyes. . . wow. How big was this guy?
    Great capture. . . gives me chills. . . icky.
    - It’s so funny to see WA & being from the US I used to thing it stood for Washington (state) because that is our appreviation… now I know better :o ) After seeing Boris I am so glad it’s not our WA here :=)
