Clouds, Rivers, and Mountains Converge in Breathtaking Landscapes of Guilin, China

May 25, 2016

Perched high atop the city of Guilin, China, photographer Kyon.J had an extraordinary view of the Li River as it winds through an unusually steep mountainscape. Early in the morning the area is often filled with fog or haze trapped in the mountains, certainly a dream scenario for any landscape photographer. You can see more of Kyon.J’s work in her portfolio where she also shares equally impressive photos of her native Japan.

Surreal Photo Manipulations by Laurent Rosset Turn Landscapes into Giant Waves

April 29, 2016

Architect and digital artist Laurent Rosset creates sweeping photographic landscapes that seem to curl upward into infinity like an enormous wave that obliterates the sky. Rosset uses much of his own photography to create each image and enjoys discovering how even slight manipulations can vastly change the composition or meaning of a photograph. You can see more of his work on Instagram, and if you liked this also check out Aydin Buyuktas. (via Colossal Submissions)

Astonishing Views of the Canary Islands Photographed by Lukas Furlan

Located off the coast of Morocco, the Canaries are a cluster of volcanic islands that are among Spain’s farthest-flung territories, rich in biodiversity and no shortage of scenic views. Last September, 25-year-old media student Lukas Furlan spent several weeks exploring two of the islands, Tenerife and the much smaller La Gomera, returning with a stunning collection of photos. At a young age Furlan has already amassed an impressive body of landscape photography, most notably several series of images taken at different locations along the Alps. You can see more of his photography on Facebook and Instagram. (via Behance)

Drones Rigged with LED Lights Dramatically Illuminate Landscapes at Night

Photographer Reuben Wu‘s (previously) latest series attempts to bring the alien mystique of planetary exploration to our own world, creating theatrically-lit compositions with the aid of GPS-enabled drones. “Lux Noctis” is influenced by a confluence of 19th century romantic painting and science fiction which is expressed in the dramatic ways each drone lights the earthen subjects from above.

“My aim is to portray a unique perspective of the planet we live on by illuminating night landscapes with an aerial LED light,” said Wu. “Scenes which show not only the beauty of the landscape but also the versatility and awesomeness of adapting new technology to create art.”

Wu used a prototype AL250 light by Fiilex mounted on a 3DR Solo UAV. Typically known for their ability to capture visuals below rather than light them, Wu’s drones serve as flying light beams which circumvent expensive cranes or helicopters previously used to light scenes.

You can see more of Wu’s dramatically lit work on his Instagram and Facebook. (via PetaPixel, thnx John!)

Toy Dinosaurs Add a Prehistoric Dimension to Travel Snapshots

March 15, 2016

Over the last few years we’ve seen several series where people use toys, pets, and unwitting significant others as props to liven up their travel photos. Photographer Jorge Saenz decided to pounce on the idea with his “#dinodinaseries” that incorporates a small herd of plastic dinosaur toys turned tourists who join him on his adventures. It all began when Saenz purchased a green brachiosaurus toy at a flea market in La Paz, Bolivia and shared a few shots of it exploring the local surroundings. The miniature reptiles have since accompanied him to other South American countries like Paraguay and Peru where they’ve braved rapids, climbed mountains, and explored Incan ruins. You can see many more on Saenz’s Instagram.

Photographer Nicolas Bouvier Shoots Figures in Silhouette Against Mysterious and Foreboding Landscapes

February 4, 2016

In what could easily have been snapshots of a normal day at the beach or a hike through the woods, these photos by Nicolas Bouvier (previously) portray figures exploring the Pacific Northwest in stark, mysterious contrast. The French art director and concept designer is a master of teasing unusual scenes from breathtaking landscapes around the coast of Washington. By placing himself in foggy atmospheres and shooting against the sun, his photography turns passersby (and often images of his own children) into anonymous silhouettes. Instead of lugging around lots of equipment, Bouvier carries only a smaller and relatively inexpensive point-and-shoot Panasonic ZS40 or a Leica XVario, preferring ergonomy, simplicity, and design over more elaborate setups. You can explore more of his recent work on Flickr.
