- Morskie Oko, or Eye of the Sea in English, is the largest and fourth-deepest lake in the Tatra Mountains, in southern Poland. It is located deep within the Tatra National Park in the Rybi Potok Valley, of the High Tatras mountain range at the base of the Mięguszowiecki Summits, in Lesser Poland Voivodeship.
Mount Aspiring National Park
- Moraine Lake is a glacially fed lake in Banff National Park, 14 kilometres outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 1,884 metres. The lake has a surface area of 50 hectares. The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinctive shade of azure blue.
- Alaska Airlines is a major American airline headquartered in SeaTac, Washington, within the Seattle metropolitan area. It is the fifth largest airline in the United States when measured by fleet size, scheduled passengers carried, and the number of destinations served.
- Trolltunga is a rock formation situated about 1,100 metres above sea level in Ullensvang Municipality in Vestland county, Norway. The cliff juts horizontally out from the mountain, about 700 metres above the north side of the lake Ringedalsvatnet. Popularity of the hike to Trolltunga and rock formation itself has exploded in recent years. The increased popularity has turned Trolltunga into a national icon and a major tourist attraction for the region. Until 2010, fewer than 800 people hiked to Trolltunga each year.
- Val d'Isère is a commune of the Tarentaise Valley, in the Savoie department in southeastern France. It lies 5 km from the border with Italy. It is on the border of the Vanoise National Park created in 1963. During the Albertville 1992 Winter Olympics, the Face de Bellevarde was the site of the men's downhill race. Other alpine skiing events held during those games included men's giant slalom and alpine combined.
Tre Cime di Lavaredo
- The Tre Cime di Lavaredo, also called the Drei Zinnen, are three distinctive battlement-like peaks, in the Sexten Dolomites of northeastern Italy. They are probably one of the best-known mountain groups in the Alps. The three peaks, from east to west, are: Cima Piccola / Kleine Zinne Cima Grande / Große Zinne Cima Ovest / Westliche Zinne.
- Mýrdalsjökull is an ice cap in the south of Iceland. It is to the north of Vík í Mýrdal and to the east of the smaller ice cap Eyjafjallajökull. Between these two glaciers is Fimmvörðuháls pass. Its peak reaches 1,493 m in height and in the year 1980 it covered an area of approximately 595 km². The icecap of the glacier covers an active volcano called Katla. The caldera of the volcano has a diameter of 10 km and the volcano erupts usually every 40–80 years. The last eruption took place in 1918.
- Nordegg is a hamlet in west-central Alberta, Canada within Clearwater County. It is located in the North Saskatchewan River valley in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, just east of the intersection of the David Thompson Highway and the Highway 734 spur of the Bighorn Highway.

Strolling down the canyon. It was midnight and auroras were bursting, but i was stuck in the canyon, so i tried to make as much use as i can from the position where i was. The idea fell on my mind to light the sides with the torches and another selfie came out :)
The FÄƒgÄƒraÈ™ mountains had quite a show going on during a splitboarding and avalanche training session in the BÃ¢lea area. The mix of colours was surreal during this sunset, we could only stare for the whole very few minutes that the colour show lasted.
Aerial photography opens up a whole new world of photographic opportunities. One of my new fascinations is the design and textures of frozen bodies of water. The patterns of ice and snow form an intriguing natural art. Again, I’m reminded of the hidden beauty all around us.
This is the classic Lofoten Islands shot but I’m not ashamed of taking it because the sea, sky and mountains are always different throughout each day. This was early evening in late March, there was still plenty of snow around and the evening light was magic. You should visit the Lofotens it’s utterly amazing.
We left at 4am to get this place to ourselves, and it sure was worth it! It’s a 13km hike to reach this spot, but those 13km are the most beautiful kilometers you will ever walk. This is about as dangerous as it looks; it’s 100’s of metres off the ground - It would hurt. This might well be the most beautiful place in the world.
Even though we were surrounded by snow, it felt warm. The sun reflected and bounced off the snow to cover us in warmth. At this elevation in Switzerland, you feel almost in the clouds, it’s surreal. And yet, it’s a simple train ride to the top, no climbing gear needed.
I took a road trip from Idaho to the Grand Tetons and slept in my car to wake up for this beautiful blue hour right before sunrise. I didn’t need to edit any colors really it was just as cool blue as I saw. I was jumping out of my skin experiencing this range for the first time, tired, and hungry and hoping to run into a few Moose.
Taken at Iceland’s second largest glacier Langjökull. I was based at the foot of the mass of ice taking abstract shots of the patterns running through the frozen mass when a group of friendly hikers passed me. I waited in position watched their cautious ascent up the intimidating glacier. When the hikers reached a prime position I took my shot, emphasising the fact that when man and nature co-operate they create a powerful work of art.
This is where I spent my Saturday morning. How about you? Bubblers are the people who go out to this lake to see the methane bubbles that appear under the surface of the ice. I was on the verge of freezing to death and had to retreat into the van but the others managed to catch a glimpse of them. I regret it though- next time I’d lose a toe for the photo. For now, I’m not yet a bubbler!
I’ve had an art block for several weeks, so instead of trying to force something. I got a couple of canvases, some paint, a cup of chai and relaxed while painting this and lots more. I live by the seaside so I immediately started imagining the waves, going back and forth. With foam and depth. Creativity to me, like the ocean it comes like waves.
Hiking to Trolltunga through thick fog in the morning felt like a whole different world. Especially once we realized on the return trip, once the fog had cleared, that we were hiking right next to a massive expanse that proved to be quite the view itself. The fjords of Norway are not to be missed by anyone looking to see what nature has to offer.
This is the Pastoruri Glacier in Peru, from this photo, it looks huge but it’s not even 30% of what was once before. As you can see, the ice is turning to water and creating this lake. Some researches show that this glacier will disappear in 3-4 years…
