After three days of storms in December I've been very happy to be there on this stunning coast in Northern Spain - to transport that mood into a photo. It has been important to me to wait for the right wave to include the movement of the water in the foreground - and a 6 second exposure gave just the right mixture of calmness and movement.

Nick Smith for Outdoor Photography magazine: "There's something magical about Henrik Spranz's photography. Although deeply rooted in the hyper-real world of natural history and landscape, his work bears none of the hallmarks of scientific illustration or even animal portraiture. His world is a dream-like state of whimsical and wispy perfection, pastel colours and cheeky woodland creatures. In fact, it's fair to say that the Spranz portfolio has more in common with Grimm's Fairy Tales, Hans Christian Andersen or even the early animated children's movies by Walt Disney..."
