David Martin Castan’s website will greet you with this declaration written on it: “Nothing is Impossible, Do It”. He is embodied with that ‘seize the day’ spirit or, carpe diem in Latin. He puts this philosophy into practice as we see his works, specifically those unreal images of the Icelandic topography. Castan captures such incredible photographs of Iceland, a feat in itself because although stunning visually, Iceland is not exactly one of the most hospitable places with harsh, bitter cold weather to deal with at most times.
Not too long ago astronaut/ geophysicist Alexander Gerst shared his remarkable Earth Time-lapse video that was shot in Ultra HD while orbiting inside the International Space Station. This time he shares some still images of clouds casting thousand-mile shadows into space which can only be seen from the ISS perspective.
Mention pit bulls and you normally get a reaction of how these are some of the most vicious of dog breeds. Acclaimed pet trainer Caesar Milan was always quick to dispel this widely held belief, showing how sweet and gentle a pit bull can actually be. Well looks like he will be getting some help in retooling the dog’s bad reputation from U.S.-based French photographer Sophie Gamand. To detract from their typical portrayal as ferocious and aggressive canines, Gamand, has set out to change all that by photographing pit bulls posed with attractive hippie flower crowns.
Some recent macro photography to come out of the internet is from Wil Mijer, a gifted photographer based in the Netherlands who has a special fondness for the miniature world of colorful tropical frogs. Mijer is an extremely artistic and passionate photographer and her heart has been won over by the tiny tropical creatures.
Photographer Eric Hines shoots pensive images of reflections in every amazing location he chooses and one is made to muse over the various panoramas as well as feel the tranquility present in each photograph. He is able to manifest natural light as it bursts out across the heavens in his magnificent collection of landscapes. Hines uses long exposure techniques to capture a muted, indistinct painterly light, the flowing motion of water, or a star-filled night sky. Stillness is contrasted with a lively energy that emanates from the lush, rich colors.
