500px Editors’ Choice : Cool the Flames by MAPhoto

Recently, on a 4-week long winter trip to Patagonian Argentina and Chile, I found icebergs stemming from some of the region’s largest glaciers to be a major interest, among other things. I photographed these sometimes house-sized chunks of crystal ice from above and below, and even at this point launched a pack-raft I carried 25 miles backpacking for the purposes of accessing and photographing some remote waters (not technically legal, unless your vessel meets their algae-free specifications). In the background of this image high peaks rise nearly 10,000ft from Lago Grey and in the foreground is that amazing clear ice reflecting a beautiful sunrise. To get the shot was very tricky, having no good way to anchor to the berg, floating along side it, it took many passes to get it right. It was eventually captured in a single exposure with a 24mm lens.

New on 500px : fire on ice by Dionys_Moser by Dionys_Moser

This was taken on our
Greenland Fototour
guided by Dionys Moser.
During arctic summer we mostly use the warm and bride midnightsunlight.
Even with „bad“ weather, we enjoy the contrasts in the clouds.
Our daily fototours to the icebergs with small boats sometimes last 4-5 hours.
If you’re interested in joining me on our next Greenland trip in 2015 and learn more about iceberg photography, please check out my website for more information and tour impression :
Due to very popular demand we have two tours to Greenland in 2015 and as usual both are filling fast.

New on 500px : Above the Cold by MAPhoto by MAPhoto

A moment of dramatic light above this remote lakeshore we camped at for a few days in the Torres Del Paine region of southern Chile. The conditions were extremely windy and cold all day, blowing the snow from the peaks in the background of this image. Below, a multitude of almost unbelievably blue icebergs fill the lake, breaking up the waves. The largest of the bergs in this photo is as tall as a 7-story building! I took the shot from a place far from the trails on a secluded cove about 25 meters above the water.

The light Paine is exceptional in late fall and winter, and dramatic conditions can be expected. In winter the sun is so low that you are very nearly shooting sunrise or sunset the whole day (which starts at 10am). At one point we observed 14 out of 15 consecutive sunrises and sunsets that were this good, probably my lifetime record, and a photographer’s dream! The challenge is, like always, also where the most excitement is. It’s about getting off the beaten path and seeing unique places, making images that are yours. I will NEVER forget this trip to this remote shore. We nicknamed it iceberg bay (obviously).
