Weggen’s images are real, but with a few tweaks they manage to look surreal.
Geert Weggen spends a lot of time gazing out of his kitchen window, particularly at the red squirrels in his backyard. He’s also a photographer, so the images he captures of the red squirrels are pretty spectacular. Here’s what Weggen had to say about his work in an interview:
Some years ago I started to take photos from my kitchen window of mostly wild red squirrels, and do that still. Normally, I get bored after doing something for a few years, but not with this. I still watch these beautiful animals almost every day and make photos.
The images below are authentic — Weggen says the only things that are Photoshopped away are wires and food he uses to lure them. These photos are amazing, and will definitely make you smile.
