Mesa Arch by bruno-birkhofer

One shot found in my archive of 2012.
As idyllic this may look, I still remember how much we had to fight to gather a good spot when the sun came up. The best Pictures make Photographers with the strongest Elbows, because there are so many People trying to catch a Picture at the perfect Moment..

Dyrhólaey Iceland by MarianGociek

Dyrhólaey was amazing, just the weather like usual on Iceland is unpredictable, went there two times, and nothing else just rain 😉 Maybe next time we will see more colors during sunset

Lucky – Hole in One by m4photo

Captured at Durdle Door in Dorset when the sun pops through the arch, this image is one of the highlights of my year.
The weather was horrendous on the way down with rain for 3/4 of the journey and arriving on dense fog, but the early start was well worth the end results of this iconic location.
Why ‘Lucky -Hole in One’? Quite simply I was extremely lucky to get this shot because I had to let my sister get the train from Heathrow to where I live (she’s staying with us for Xmas with her family), the weather cleared just as dawn broke and I had the pleasure of three great photography friends, one that brings us luck every time we go out shooting together. Lastly, because this was my first every visit to Durdle Door and I’m immensely grateful to Paul Reiffer for setting up this shoot for us, especially given his workload at the present time.
I hope that you enjoy this image as much as I do.

Inferno Door by jaychong

“Inferno Door”

Well, I was going do a top 5 images of 2015 but I ran out of time culling through the photos. So I decided to just edit photos smile emoticon. Sunset blow up was predicted by team ‪#‎escaype‬ !

Techy stuff: I took 2 panos and blended them together to get a 3:2 ratio so I could get a more drawn in FG and in a portrait format. Each pano was 6 shot stitch. This became one huge and sluggish file to edit. Edit in Adobe PS CC using Luminosity mask for DR and the usual bag of tricks.
