Stunning photos of wildlife, amazing

Spanish photographer Marina Cano is known for her stunning photos of nature and and its wildlife. Although she lives in Cantabria in northern Spain, the photographer frequently travels to faraway locations such as South Africa and Kenya to capture spectacular shots of exotic beasts. What sets Cano's photos apart is her unique ability to document the intimacy and beauty of the majestic creatures, giving the viewer a rare glimpse of untamed giraffes, elephants, zebras, and other animals in their daily lives.

When she’s not at home or teaching photography workshops in Cantabria, Spain, Marina can be found scouting the world’s best locations to capture amazing wildlife images.
