Chocolate Dunes by khd_uae

Hi all 🙂
I took this shot at empty quarter in UAE in a place called Liwa
I suggest you all guys to visit this magnificent place with an incredible desert composition .. I put a man to give a scale to this huge place .. I took it in landscape mode also but I prefer this one more ..

I would like to mention that I did not want to play with colours and lights, I could also make it better with some retouches, rather than that I preferred it to look as it was,not as I want it to be .. of course there are a little post processing here such as enhancing the clarity & contrast ..

Hope u all like it 🙂 and thanks for your support.. it means a lot to a beginner photographer like me 🙂

Stokksnes 9 a.m. (II) by Carlosmacr

When i traveled 2 years ago to Iceland, there was one night when i didn’t plan anything special, as the place where we were sleeping was still far from the Jokulsarlon and travelling with family was not the perfect time to drive alone 200 km during the night. So i when driving to the hostel i saw in the road a sign where written Stokksnes. So next day, before sunrise i drove to that place which i though was very unknown as i had not read anything about it before the trip. 🙂 Once there i was completely alone and the place really amazing. When i finished the trip and came back home i could see that i was completely wrong as i started to see in 500px, almost everyday, a shot from this location. I am happy i decided in the last minute to visit this fantastic location, not far from the city where we were sleeping, in Höfn. Just wonder what would be if i had came to this place in the night, when we could see clear northern lights from Höfn 🙂

Thanks for your visits and wish you all a nice weekend


Cuando visité hace dos años Islandia con mi familia llevaba todo muy planeado. Todo salvo la noche o el amanecer de la noche que pasariamos en Höfn. Al ir con familia me daba cosa conducir solo hasta Jokulsarlon durante la noche, ya que estaba a cierta distancia. Pero conduciendo de camino a Höfn vi unos km antes una indicación a Stokksmes, lo que pensaba que sería una localización poco conocida.
Me fui para allá al amanecer y no encontré a nadie, por lo que me reafirmé en que era un sitio desconocido, lo cual me extrañaba por la belleza del lugar.
Al volver de viaje me di cuenta de que estaba completamente equivocado. Aunque no fuera una de las paradas típicas para los turistas, estaba claro que sí lo era para muchos fotógrafos, pues raro era el dia en que no veía en 500px una foto del lugar. :-))

Sólo me preguntó lo bonito que podría haber sido de haber visitado el lugar pocas horas antes, de noche, ya que esa misma noche pudimos ver en Höfn, pese a haber cierta contaminación lumínica, las auroras boreales.
Gracias por tu visita y que pasen todos un buen fin de semana 🙂

Surrounded By Sand by caseymac

Somehow I’ve lived in Colorado for over 4 years and have never made it to check out the Great Sand Dunes. Inspired by social network posts from three photographers who’s work I greatly respect, I decided to finally venture down to check it out myself.

Knowing that light creates nice shadows in the afternoon, I wanted to capture a high contrast image in black and white. I figured the difficult part, though, would be getting a hiker into the frame to show a sense of scale. After setting up my composition and waiting for a few minutes for someone to walk through, I decided to take things into my own hands. I plugged in my timer remote to my 1DX and set up a timelapse to capture 1 shot every 3 seconds and walked up the hill myself. The nice contrasting spot is 200-300 yards away from my camera. The best part about using myself as a model is I know exactly what body position I’m looking to get and I don’t get annoyed when a photographer asks me to do it over and over until it’s right 🙂

Low tide by wimlassche

Walk Onward by elizabethgadd

The black sand beaches of Iceland were incredibly beautiful… And the waves were incredibly terrifying. I’ve always had mad respect for the ocean and it’s powerful churning waters. As much as I am a mountain or a forest girl, it’s still the sea that I find to be most captivating. I could stare at it for hours, breathing in the salty, misty air while the wind pulls and tangles my hair, and I still never tire of watching the waves crash into the shore, each one different from the last. It’s mesmerizing, and somehow both frightening and calming to me at the same time.
