New on 500px : The Legacy of Ancestors by MahmoudYakut by MahmoudYakut

Heavily processed conceptual image with a sky layer added.
As an Egyptian I always grew up and lived with the legacy of my ancestors in the back of my mind. I remember as a child, the first time when I visited an ancient pharaoh temple I swapped its walls with my hand and felt myself connecting with the ancestors who’ve been in this place and touched these walls thousands of years ago, it was such a strange feeling to feel I am touching exactly the same wall they did.

Now when I visit any of these places, it is such a unique experience, I imagine them all alive and colored like they were originally been one day, and imagine those kings and their guards and all these majestic appearances and rituals…. for me it is like being in a dream or a fairy tale

New on 500px : The tourist photographer by Dionysso by Dionysso

During my trip back to my home country I visited Cape Sounion, where the site of ruins of an ancient Greek temple of Poseidon the god of the sea in classical mythology is. There was a lot of tourists as always during this season in Greece. I’ve had the chance to catch the moment with this unknown photographer on the right place, with no other people in the frame, and during a fantastic sunset.. Hope you will like it!!

New on 500px : Dreams Along The Coast by Shainblum by Shainblum

PLEASE VIEW ON BLACK!

I shot this photography yesterday on the Mendocino Coastline. Me and my buddy Griffin spontaneously packed up the car at 10pm and took the 3 hour drive on the twisty 1North highway. About 1 hour into the drive we were close to empty on gas and attempted to find a nearby station. After aimlessly searching Google Maps with almost no service, we stopped in to ask the front desk of the only motel in the area. The man at the front desk told us the only gas station open was back 30 minutes the direction we came. If we had kept going we would have been stuck all night with no service in the middle of nowhere.

Long story short, we ended up at the costal trail at about 2am and proceeded to hike down some minor cliffs. Once we hit the beach we were graced with the amazingly vivid Galactic Core over the ocean. I took the panorama out of excitement. I hope you all enjoy it.
