New on 500px : Zion Canyon by leland2 by leland2

Utah, southern, Dramatic panoramic of Zion Canyon in Zion National Park. Capturing the grandeur of a large landscape scene can be one of the most difficult challenges. Far to often the magnificence is lost when rendered on a small two dimensional plane. A lifetime is spent in search of ideal conditions along with beautiful light that might, among other things, create the illusion of a three dimensional space. This clearing storm in Zion National Park of southern Utah was just such an opportunity. I refer to it sometimes as the attempt to do a landscape justice. When the conditions are right, everything has to be done correctly in what can be a very short period of time. Over the decades I’ve missed far more opportunities than I’ve been successful at. It’s the nature of the game and the learning process.

New on 500px : Mountains of Kazbegi by roliketto by roliketto

This is most people’s destination on the Georgian Military Highway: a spectacularly located town just a few kilometres south of the Russian border, with the snowy peak of Mt Kazbek towering to the west, behind the famous hill-top silhouette of Tsminda Sameba Church. Kazbegi is the main town of Khevi, the region north of the Jvari Pass.

Now officially named Stepantsminda, but still known as Kazbegi, this is a sleepy mountain town at about 1750m altitude, with mainly Soviet-era buildings. It’s a favourite with backpackers for its relatively easy access from Tbilisi (with dramatic scenery along the way), its plentiful homestays and the walking in the area.

New on 500px : Beginning or End by AlisterBenn by AlisterBenn

The Isle of Eigg off the west coast of Scotland is rightly a famous landscape photography location. The beautiful beach of the Bay of Laig and the Singing Sands. The view over the the Isle of Rum is one of the finest in Scotland – when you can see it!

My wife and I took my 81 year old mother there for a week in March, renting a small cottage and taking all the weather nature could throw at us. We had everything, from gales, torrential rain, snow and occasional glorious sunshine.

This little spot was found after a few days of exploration, a little creek that worms its way down to the sea over some excellent rocks.

The second last night of our stay proved to be the best opportunity, with a higher tide, great light and a sky full of drama. Enough of Rum could be seen to recognize the distinctive shape.

Best viewed on Black.
