We were immediately captured by the beautiful work of Arnaud Bathiard featuring the mystical Azores, an archipelago scattered in the mid-Atlantic. The Azores, an autonomous region of Portugal, are most commonly characterized by dramatic landscapes, fishing villages, and green pastures gratefully salvaged from mass tourism. Bathiard does a spectacular job of capturing the unique landscape of this secret land with an incredible softness and clarity that celebrates its natural beauty. His long exposure technique adds an amazing feeling of peace and calm that one can only imagine is the sense upon stepping foot on this majestic land. Restrictions on air routes to the Azores have recently eased up so if this is a destination on your bucket list you're in luck! Enjoy and check out more from Bathiard here.

Self- taught photographer, Arnaud started to take pictures at the age of 40. His love for seascapes quickly led me to becoming interested in the technique of long exposure, which he developed over the past four years during his many trips (Sweden, Norway, Scotland, Brittany, Spain, Portugal, Azores, Switzerland, Venezia, etc). Arnaud's works have been exhibited in various places, including Bangkok and Venice.

Hope this inspires you! For more from Jakub Polomski visit jakubpolomski.com/. My Own Path Short story of my life or rather about the role which photography plays in it. INTRODUCTION My name is Jakub Polomski. I am Polish photographer specializing in landscape and travel photography. Now I can say I am professional photographer, I make my living on landscape photography. However it took me some time to get to this point of my life. I hope this story will inspire you somehow. INSPIRATION My adventure with photography began in 2005. It was very difficult time for me. I finished school, and I didn’t know what to do in my life. I had no plans for the future. While reading issue of National Geographic magazine the simple idea came across my mind – why not to try taking pictures? I borrowed camera from a friend, never before I had my own. I began taking pictures around my hometown Cieszyn, and I really enjoyed it. I was reading about photography and learning myself. After some time I thought my images are really good, and I decided to publish them on Polish photo web platforms. I was the beginner, so according to this famous chart I believed 80% of my photos are good. Well, they were not, and I got a lot of negative comments. MOTIVATION Thanks to these critiques I made a huge progress. I wanted to prove myself that I can do it better and I spent really a lot of time on photographing, reading, and learning. I worked 8-10 hours per day as self-taught graphic designer at a production company. After work I studied photography for another 8 hours, and during weekends. In 2007 for the first time I sent my images to some Polish photo contest in which I was awarded with the 3rd prize. Since 2007, I have been awarded with several prizes and commendations in various national and international photography contests. However by far the most important for me is National Geographic Poland statuette gained for the first place in category ‘Polish Landscape’ in 2010. After receiving this award I decided to try making photography my profession. THE JOURNEY In the same year I was also awarded with one of 4 main prizes in contest featured by National Geographic Traveler. The award was for me like a dream. It was 7-days journey to Patagonia. The funny thing about it was that I hadn’t flown by airplane before, and this trip from Cieszyn (Poland) to El Calafate (Argentina) lasted 36 hours. I loved it. It was February, so Poland was covered by snow and I appeared in such an exotic and photogenic location. 2007 POLAND ∙ SLOVAKIA 2008 SLOVAKIA ∙ SWITZERLAND ∙ AUSTRIA 2009 AUSTRIA 2010 One more thing… BACKUP In this year by short circuit I lost all data on my computer. I didn’t have backup. After couple of days I recovered small part of pictures, but I thought they were useless. I even considered to resign, but finally I managed to continue my activity. Also this year I was awarded in National Geographic photo contest, and the winning photo was one of those recovered. 2011 ITALY ∙ AUSTRIA ∙ ARGENTINA ∙ CHILE 2012 SLOVAKIA ∙ FRANCE ∙ SWITZERLAND 2013 NORWAY ∙ SLOVAKIA ∙ CZECH REPUBLIC 2014 ARGENTINA ∙ CHILE ∙ FRANCE For more from Jakub Polomski visit jakubpolomski.com/.

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. For more of their work, simply click each picture! They'll definitely appreciate your visit. Also, if you got your own photos of Hawaii don't think twice before sharing them with us! Cheers. ;) Michele Falzone Isac Goulart Nolan Nitschke Miles Morgan David Manzi Troy Wong Warren Ishii Nanouk el Gamal Charles Ramiscal Brian Behling Joshua Lambus Charles Ramiscal Tom Kualii Sarah Lee Cj Kale Dustin Gent T Dingle Cj Kale Anthony W.
