Aerial photography is capable of capturing some of the most amazing pictures. The tools, techniques, and gear needed to capture such images, however, are often confusing and tricky to master. The use of drones or an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an essential element in this niche of photography. David Kaszlikowski made use of a drone to reveal a stunning scene atop a glacier not far from K2. K2 is the second highest mountain in the world at 8,611 metres, following Mount Everest. It is the highest point of the Karakoram Range and the highest point in Pakistan.
Have a look at a picturesque village in China’s Shengsi islands. This place found at the base of the Yangtze River which used to be a bustling fishing village, but over time its residents abandoned the area and Mother Nature seems to have taken over.
The night has sent countless people through the ages into fits of prose and poetry, and why not? To gaze into the evening sky is one of the beautiful enigmas life has to offer. For the Austria-based photographer and dentist Nicholas Roemmelt, such awe-inspiring images can be seen from his own backyard in Tyrol, Austria.
The world is turned into a realm of colored pastels as the skies and the horizon meet in Anthony Samaniego’s series entitled Dreamscapes. Photographed mostly during dusk, there is a distinctly soft quality that lends itself to all of the picture in the collection, an effect caused by the refraction of the sun’s rays emanating from the atmosphere.
World War Two perhaps witnessed the most horrific sea battles in the history of human warfare. As a result, countless ships were sunk, either belonging to the axis or allied powers. Many of the sea battles were also fought in the air, through legions of combat aircraft belonging to either side. The sea is a veritable graveyard for such airplanes, where many lie undisturbed in the bottom of the ocean. One such graveyard however, has a distinctly different background and story.
Invisibility occurs when an object cannot be seen. An object in this state is referred to as being ‘invisible.’ We often hear the term used in fantasy or science fiction, where things or even people are literally made unseeable via some means. ‘Invisibility perception’ is dependent on many optical and visual factors. For instance, invisibility depends on the eyes of the observer; or possibly the instruments being used. In the case of Natalie Fletcher, she makes use of her own art form, rather ingeniously, to create the illusion of invisibility.
