Javier Herranz Casellas,    Nature and Travel Photography
San Lorenzo del Escorial, Spain.
So I just take pictures and enjoy it. I lose myself in travelling and exploring new countries with their mountains, peoples and customs, exploring new natural settings and discovering the unknown, letting myself go, capturing whatever I come across that catches my eye, whether it be flora, fauna or a charming setting, which I then interpret through my own experience and mood and I frame to immortalize in a small fragment that I can share with everybody else.
