New on 500px : Magic Mushrooms by projas by projas

From a trip my friend David Thompson and I took to the remote badlands of New Mexico last April.
I had spotted this formation on a trip the previous year, but was unable to get to it due to the fact that I got caught in a thunderstorm and found myself up to my ankles in cement-like mud.
So, I made it a point to check it out the next time I visited, and this is what we came upon. It was a crazy sunset, and as the light developed, we began running around like kids in a candy store, trying to get as many shots as possible. It just kept getting better and better and we probably shot for almost an hour. At the end of it all, we were exhausted but ecstatic with what we had just seen. Being so remote, there was nobody else there, so in a way, it felt like a privilege to have witnessed such an amazing display of light.

New on 500px : Rainfire by FlorentCourty by FlorentCourty

The first sunset since it’s really spring here. It was raining a little at this moment, creating a sort of orange haze everywhere with that sunset light. You can see some rainshafts under the clouds’ base at the top of the image, they looked very nice with that light. A great sunset from a nice spot quite hidden, which somehow fit well with this warm haze since this place looks much “arid” for the region, with lots of pines and huge rocks. Ris, Puy de Dôme, France.
