Paths and roads create a powerful visual connection. Beside making great stock photos, they're also great just for inspiration. When using in website design, photos of paths, roads, and walkways can be a great background piece. For print media, they can add a nice, eye-catching touch to postcards or brochures. Photos that contain lots of negative space, such as sky, are perfect for incorporating text.
Nostalgic Landscape Photography
My wife often mocks me for enjoying so much a good set of landscape photographs. But hey, nature is so beautiful, how could I not love it? Colorful sunsets over the mountains, dreamy lakes and fantastic forests... I seriously can't get enough of it. Dylan Toh is an Australian photographer with an amazing eye for capturing great landscapes. All the lightning and panoramas in his set is just breath taking. Here you can see a few of his pieces. For more of it, please go ahead and visit his portfolio at Flickr.
Last week we had an amazing post on some of the most astonishing landscapes from New Zealand. Yesterday I was taking a look at some pictures when I ran into an image so epic that I couldn't believe: the Hawaiian sunset. So I searched for more photos of Hawaii and realized something: Hawaii is one of the most epic places on Earth. They got everything there: country, beach, city, lava pits, lava pits meeting the ocean. All of these compose an amazing land, full of eye-candy for all of us, suckers for some Earth photography. These were taken by some really talented photographers.
Landscape and environment illustrations have been by far my favorite subject when it comes to digital art or even traditional art. I simply love how digital artists are able to come up with illustrations with sometimes surreal, other times futuristic landscapes that are so creative and are able to make us imagine how it would be if one of those were real.
