When you think of New Zealand and its majestic topography, the word epic comes to mind. With its vast expanses of land still seemingly unmolested, the country provides some of the most imposing geographic landscapes on the planet. Any cinema location manager worth his salt knows that if you want immense, expansive images; look no further than New Zealand. The trilogy, Lord of the Rings cemented this fact, putting on film its incomparable scenery.
26-year-old photographer and art director Alexandre Felix recently travelled to the country’s fabled countryside. After honing his skills for around five years, he went to New Zealand in December of 2012 and came back with hundreds of beautiful landscape images.
It would certainly not be far-fetched to say that Rob Whitworth’s skill for time-lapse photography is a cut above the rest. Each time he releases new work, it sends the photography community into a buzz of delight, just like his latest offering. Named Barcelona Go!, it is an exceptionally creative time-lapse video. It is the usual that we have come to expect from the genius of Whitworth, where perspectives will range from visual first person, on-the-ground points of view, to soaring aerial vistas of the colorful and eclectic Barcelona.
There are many ways that love can also sometimes be laced with danger. Infidelity, jealousy, possessiveness and other altered states of love can manifest in so many relationships.

In a series of pictures, we see a bride and groom pose for the customary pre-nuptial pictures, but not so far off in the distant rural field is an honest-to-goodness twister!
Frenchman Leo Caillard is another landscape photographer who captures the panoramic vistas of beautiful locations. He characterizes his work as having certain elements, saying, “A landscape series I chose to shoot in very high definition. A work about the action of humans in diverse types of environments; void of activity or full of information. Deserts and metropolises, the North to the South, a contemplative view of the world, with no specific location globally… A panoramic story of earth and man.”
