SkyGlow Project Captures Stunning Time-Lapse Of Grand Canyon Cloud Inversion

Millions of visitors come to Grand Canyon National Park, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the most visited national park in the western United States. However, on extremely rare days when cold air is trapped in the canyon and topped by a layer of warm air, which in combination with moisture and condensation, form the phenomenon referred to as the full cloud inversion. In what resembles something between ocean waves and fast clouds, Grand Canyon is completely obscured by fog, making the visitors feel as if they are walking on clouds. The full inversions, which … Read more

YouTube is testing a Stories-like feature called Reels

Promote Your Photography Adventures

As a photographer, I’ve found the Stories feature of Instagram particularly useful to keep followers up to date on my photography adventures. The popular format introduced by Snapchat, then adopted by Instagram, Skype, Facebook, Messenger and even some dating apps, is now making its way to YouTube as a new feature the company is calling “Reels.” But they’ll be a bit different than what you see on Snapchat and Instagram and they’ll be designed specifically for YouTube creators.

Mesmerizing Orbital Drone-lapse over Folegandros, Greece

Just check the storm-lapses of Mike Oblinski, the ‘flow-motion’ hyperlapses of Rob Whitworth, or the the award-winning work of Michael Shainblum.

The creative vision continues to thrive with exponential advances in photography and video technology. Hong Kong-based production company Visual Suspect just created a drone-lapse from Folegandro Island, Greece. This was accomplished by flying a drone in massive circles while recording timelapse. … Read more

Almannaskarðsgöng Tunnel, Höfn, Iceland

Going Underground on Route 1, Iceland

As I was making my way along Iceland’s Route 1 this morning, I saw a sign for an upcoming tunnel. I read about AlmannaskarĂ°sgöng a few months ago but I had forgotten about it. It’s actually refreshing not remembering every detail from travel websites and books and “discovering” something on your own.

The tunnel is located near Höfn (Hornafjörður) in Austurland in eastern Iceland. The tunnel measures 1312 metres exactly in length and was opened on June 24, 2005. The tunnel passes through narrow and steep pass between Hornafjörður and Lón district.

During the winter the road had to be … Read more
