I was away for some time and realized that the month is almost over and I haven’t posted the last month’s Stocksy top 5. Even though it’s really late this month, I had to do it as it has some great images. Either one of this images would also look great as a print:
Glad that Stocksy United liked my last batch of photos and even added 3 of them to the curated feed. All full of mysterious surreal vibes, so that makes me even more happy!
Great to see something a bit different from the usual getting a bit of the spotlight 😉
It’s time for the Stocksy United Top 5 of the month – January 2018 edition. I’ve had a hard time choosing between 23 new accepted images that were added to my exclusive Stocksy United collection. There are some surreal landscapes (something in which I have a lot of interest in lately) and abstract winter details. One of the winter details –Abstract winter texture background was also added to the curated feed by the Stocksy editors. Here are My Stocksy top 5 for the last month:
So this is it for this top, but join us again next month for another top5 and in the coming days for something new and interesting we’ve been working on.
It’s that time of the month again when I see how the last month has been and make a top of the most notable photos added to my gallery on Stocksy United. December had fewer additions than normal because of a late batch of images submitted on the 30th of November, so they don’t qualify for the top 5 of December, and also because of the Holiday season. But I still managed to find 5 great photos because as some of you might know – everything that I submit to Stocksy is well thought out and double curated. So here is my Top 5 for the month of December:
It’s time for the Stocksy United Top 5 of the month – this time for November. I’ve had a hard time choosing them but I did it in the end with a bit of delay. There is a bit of everything here: adventure under dramatic skies, rare natural phenomenons, extreme cold, beautiful natural conditions coming together perfectly to highlight the beauty of autumn and magical nights under starry skies. Got your attention? Then here are My Stocksy top 5 for the last month:
This autumn has given us a lot of good images. The idea was simple: wake up early in the morning, drive until the roads vanished then set off on foot and hope for the best. We chose days that had changing conditions – rain, sun, clouds so that we could get most out of the day. And it paid off well.
I have chosen “Mountain Peak in Autumn” as part of the top 5 of the month in October so you know it’s a favorite of mine. I really like the contrast between the warm colors of the trees and the cold tinlike colors of the mountain and sky.
This wasn’t an easy image to get. Me and my brother climbed for about 4 hours through a beautiful forest on a steep slope, stopping from time to time but being unable to see much. After finally getting out of the woods one of the first sights was this one, blowing me away. The sun was playing through the clouds so I waited for it to shine a bit on the trees and the cliff that was nearer, but not too much to have harsh shadows. The waiting game was the hardest part because I knew we had more to climb that day, but I knew it was worth it so we remained in that spot until the conditions were just right.
I used my 70-300 mm lens at 92mm and an aperture of f/8 because there was enough light around and I know this particular lens produces the best results at this aperture, with an exposure of 1/250 seconds @ISO 100.
I love that this image “grabs” a piece of that day – the colors, the changing conditions, the giant cliffs and the overall mood of the place. I’m always amazed by this place, the sheer size of it and could spend days just watching the light moving over the cliffs, always changing the landscape.
