Damn if the weather this summer hasn’t alternated between drought conditions and torrential storms. One week the plants are wilting, the next, they’re looking for a snorkel, trying their damnedest not to drown. Sorta the same with people. For us USA’ers, this weekend is a holiday weekend, but regardless where you are, this weekend largely marks the beginning of a seasonal shift. As such, I’ve found 9 reasons that you should get off your arse, get outside, and make some naturally otherworldly pictures.
Here’s 9 mind blowers from a handful of amazing photographers. Link out to their work if you have a spare minute…
Finally, a video from Nate Bolt, who condensed a ten-hour plane ride and 2,459 frames into a two minute video. And he caught the Northern Lights while he did it:
I shot a photo roughly every two miles between take-off in San Francisco and landing in Paris CDG to make this airplane time lapse.,Shot with a 5d2, a time-lapse controller, and a 16mm – 35mm, mixed with some iPhone shots. I arranged on the Korg iMS20 iPad App. Edits and pans in After Effects CS5 and iMovie.
Happy shooting. Have a great weekend.
Holy shitsticks, those photos are unreal!
The weather has been equally unusual in the Netherlands: first the worst drought in decades, and now the wettest summer ever.
A walk down the block during a lightning storm produced this for me – http://500px.com/photo/1445904.
Very nice shots and a very nice video 🙂 Thanks for sharing Chase!
That starry sky is pure beauty. If it was long exposure, was this on a motorised tripod? (No star trails?). Would love to know.
Great shots, and really love the video.. Inspiring stuff indeed.
