Heavy equipment working in the early August morning fog on the CFS Alert base in northern Canada. A layer of frost has been placed on the elevated cables, a reminder that summer never really settles in before winter returns.

Mist in the eastern arctic

An otherworldly HDR capture of the eastern arctic city of Iqaluit. Located in Canada.
A mist had been blanketing the city for a few days and began to fold back into the mountains after this photo was taken.

I took this picture in June 2009 while I was just outside of Cape Town, South Africa. I was working at a kids camp and took a quick shot of the sun setting over Table Mountain as we were headed in for dinner. I was in such a rush to capture the sunset while trying to keep an eye on a bunch of kids on the playground that I didn't even notice the boy in the right edge of my viewfinder. It wasn't until I was back home in Tennessee that I discovered the huge impact of this picture. The duality of the not-quite-teenage boy and the 260-million-year-old mountain in the same shot absolutely amazed me.

This image was taken in a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Nestled in the suburb of ordinary houses, with ordinary yards, lies this one. It sprawls out like a nightmare until it abruptly meets the domestic fences of the next door neighbors beside it. Here is where you wake up and realize it's only the backyard of a taxidermist.

A beautiful blend of savage flames and grace stoked by the self created winds.
The Serra da Leba Road near Lubango (Huíla, Angola)
Photo and caption by Kostadin Luchansky
This is Serra da Leba, a landmark in Angola. A road built in the 70's, it's been in the country's postcard images for decades, but all shots were taken by day. I wanted something different and tried a night shot. But it seemed impossible: pitch dark, foggy, altitude of 1,800m (5,000ft). I wanted no more than 60sec of exposure, max, to avoid digital noise. But a car takes a few minutes to climb or descend this section of the road. The fog was dense and blocking the view! Suddenly the fog cleared, a few cars went down, others went up, they met in the middle in under 60sec... Painting done!
