The Promise by AlisterBenn

Taken on the last day we were on Iceland last a few weeks ago, this image has been one of the hardest I have ever put together. 11 vertical frames at 14mm handheld and manually blended, warped and encouraged into this 16:9 image. Handholding it slow enough to get some flow in the water was the least of the challenges!

This is in an area I have been exploring for a few years now, in summer the rocks are carpeted in a fragile moss and the delicate environment t takes some careful handling. In winter, with everything frozen and covered in snow it was actually a bit easier to access.

Surprised by Joy by VictorCarreiro

I finally have a website! It’s far from being finished, but at least it’s up and running. http://ift.tt/1NN0zFZ

I took a day trip to the Sonoma Coast to see what I could find. It was actually frustrating and raining right up until sunset. I couldn’t find a decent comp and I had slipped on some rocks about dozen times until my knees were bleeding. Finding this little stream that fed into the ocean was a nice surprise.

Stairway to Heaven by johannesnollmeyer

Shot this photo in Mullerthal, Luxembourg (also called Petite Suisse) – which is full of fairy forests, deep caves, a lot of rocks and some waterfalls. If you like my work, feel free to follow me and take a look on my facebook and instagram feed 🙂

The Glowing Towers by aagazzi

It’s exactly one year ago when I uploaded my first image on 500px. I take this occasion and post slightly modified one of my images that I consider as my personal favorite for the year 2015. It was also the first image which has has reached a pulse over 99, kind of a special moment as a member here 🙂 Some of you have seen it though before, hopefully you don’t mind to see it once again, the original is http://ift.tt/1NPTdPI.
Thanks to all of you who have supported me over the year; many useful hints and tips have been addressed to me. I wish to everybody all my best for 2016!
