Scale Factor by DaniloFaria

Every time I go somewhere made famous by classic shots, I take the classic shots. However, I also attempt some shots that haven’t been done as much (such as this). Here, to show scale “above the Wave” panorama, if you look closely you can see three photographers: one at left, one at center and one at right. Just wait for the light to even out, and the rest is history. Thank you all for your support and visits!

winter ceremony by dgadventurespnw

it was snowing this day at the white pocket. 30 minutes before sunrise, the sky was a solid shade of dark grey – and the wind was brutal and relentless.

My 2 buddies and I had this place all to ourselves for most of the 2 days we were here.

Is there anybody out there? by DaniloFaria

How hard is to photograph a place that has been photographed thousands of times before? Answer is, very hard! However, I have had the honor to be there five times and would go again anytime I had the opportunity to! Thank you all for your support and visits!

Colorful Morning by Pcoskun

Earlier this year I had a chance to join a friend and visit one of my favorite locations in the southwest. After a beautiful sunset and a chilly evening. I awoke before sunrise to get out onto the rock formations and find a few compositions. I typically like to find complex compositions with more unique angles, but when I saw this pool and this formation reflecting in it I figured I would go for something a little more straight forward. The few clouds in the sky just happened to be right above this spot and began to light up from the first rays of the sun. The scene transformed to beautiful blues, pinks, oranges, and purples. It truly reminded me of why these landscapes have inspired me for so long. Before I ever began photography, I always thought of the desert as bland and lifeless. However, after exploring a little bit I was obviously wrong. Most people who have never been in the desert would imagine miles of desolate sand and tumbleweed and shades of brown and tan. The desert indeed can come to life in extraoridnary fashion such as in this scene here. The seasonal pool of water and the reflection of the sandstone is probably the last thing people who have never been to the desert would think of. Add to that the amazing display of color that isn’t different shades of brown. Sometimes, I cannot believe I get to live in such an incredible landscape!

10,010 by DaniloFaria

My last image posted brought my “followers” number to 10,010. For those who know me personally know that I am NOT a professional photographer at all (I am a software engineer), I have a very good “day job” doing cancer research and diagnostics instrumentation.
I purely love art, nature, hiking, exploring, traveling, photographing and sharing moments with people. I have learned a lot here in 500px, made many friends and will continue doing so. I am very open to feedback, I know I am far from perfect… I have limited equipment, however I do not blame my bad images on it and it doesn’t stop me to take more images. Cheers, I am very happy and honored to be part of this group.
Thank you very much for your support and visits!

The Stone Path by Pcoskun

Late evening light illuminates the clouds and intricate rock formations found in south coyote buttes. The colors found in the rocks here are some of the most diverse and incredible in the southwest. Many shades of yellow, orange, and even purple. This place has been one of the highlights of my travels this year and I hope to return in the near future.
