Reuters Pictures of the Year 2014 – the Photographers’ Story, Part 2

1381 Reuters Pictures of the Year 2014 – the Photographers Story, Part 2
Smoke rises from a house days after part of the ground it was resting on collapsed into Lake Whitney, Texas in this June 13, 2014 file photo. I was covering the controlled burn of a house slowly falling into Lake Whitney due to the decaying cliff underneath. Asked to take photos from an aerial perspective, an instructor and I took off from Grand Prairie Municipal Airport around 9am. The burn, scheduled to start an hour later, was delayed. I love flying, but patience proved challenging as circling for nearly three hours gets boring fast. Once the fire started we only had 15 minutes to take photos because the plane was booked at 1pm. The owners invested their retirement savings in the house and were even advised by geologists that the ground was stable. To watch your investment literally go up in flames must take its toll emotionally. The owners said they don’t expect their insurance to cover the loss. (Photo and caption by Brandon Wade/Reuters)

Reuters Pictures of the Year 2014 – the Photographers’ Story, Part 1

1379 Reuters Pictures of the Year 2014 – the Photographers Story, Part 1
Two women wearing nun outfits drink beer while watching the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier curling championships in Kamloops, British Columbia in this March 8, 2014 file photo. Although some people might conclude that a curling event could produce a dull atmosphere, it is actually far from it. Some of the most energetic and loyal fans are committed to showing their colours at tournaments around the world. There was a lull in the games that were being held on this day and I remember spotting these nuns sitting in their seats earlier. Although them just sitting there didn’t produce a picture, I kept my eye on them for the entire match. As soon as I spotted them with beer in their hands, I slowly turned my camera towards them and waited for them to take a drink. One of the challenges of shooting this image was to not have everyone notice me taking the photo. I had a longer lens on and was right in the middle of the rink. I slowly turned my lens, not to make my intentions too obvious, and waited until they drank from their beers together. (Photo and caption by Ben Nelms/Reuters)

Seal Pup Season in England

1377 Seal Pup Season in England
A Grey Seal pup and it’s mother lay in the mud at the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s Donna Nook nature reserve on November 24, 2014 in Grimsby, England. Seal pup numbers have increased on last year with over 800 pups born at the reserve so far. Large bull seals are the first to arrive at the reserve in late October or early November where they will wait for females. The Cow’s arrive later and are herded into harems by the bulls, where they give birth to a single pup which is covered in white fur. The seals return to the North Sea in January before returning to the same area to give birth the following year. The Donna Nook reserve is the UK’s premier destination to see Grey Seals and thousands of visitors from across the country come to see the wildlife spectacle every year.

Four Seasons of Chino Farm

1374 Four Seasons of Chino Farm
Clouds gather over recently planted fields on the Chino family farm in Rancho Santa Fe, California March 7, 2013. The gravitational pull of Chino Farm is legendary. Since they don’t ship, everyone – whether a top chef or a traveling foodie or a local resident – comes to the farm stand, simply called “Vegetable Shop”, on a dusty corner of this affluent San Diego County town, hemmed in by sprawling housing estates. Long before farmers’ markets and heirloom vegetables popped up across the country, Tom Chino’s parents bought the 45-acre (18.2-hectare) farm after World War Two and forged their independence from wholesalers and supermarkets, setting their prices and cultivating a diverse offering of crops.

Rabbit Showjumping at an Animal Fair in Stuttgart

1369 Rabbit Showjumping at an Animal Fair in Stuttgart
The Grand National springs to mind as the yearly highlight of the “sport of kings” – thoroughbred steeds and their brave jockeys triumphing (or failing) over gruelling courses and high-fenced adversity. And now steeplechase enthusiasts can add another event to the annuls of great sporting occasions, namely the Stuttgart rabbit show jumping. Here: Rabbit showjumping at an animal fair in Stuttgart, Germany, on November 16, 2014. (Photos by Action Press/Rex Features)

Revelers set a bull’s horns on fire during the “Toro de Jubilo” Fire Bull Festival in Medinaceli, Spain, Sunday, November 16, 2014. The Fire bull Festival “Toro de Jubilo” that takes place in the main square of Medinaceli is an ancient tradition from the bronze age. During the event a bull is tied to a pylon and flammable balls attached to the bull’s horns are set on fire before the animal released.
