Rocks In Peace by Federico Antonello www.outdoorphotodream.com “I was returning after a day immersed in the waterfalls of Fanes, Dolomites, near Cortina in Italy. Walking into the forest, I crossed a small bridge and, turning to the left, saw this surreal scene. I composed the image with the river in the corner, leading into the scene. It was a mystical and dreamy sight – the wisps of fog, the muted colours and the low cloud. I used a Lee Filters Big Stopper for a long exposure.” Canon EOS 6D with Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L lens. Exposure: 120 seconds at f/16 (ISO 100). The Wild Grapes by Ivan Ustinov 500px.com/ivan_warhammer “We shot this portrait at the end of summer.

How far would you go for a great image? whatever your answer, it’s safe to say that NaSa’s Juno probe has all terrestrial efforts beaten at this point. launched in august 2011 from Cape Canaveral in florida, and costing a staggering uSd$1 billion to build, Juno has travelled some 415-million miles over the past five years and has finally started beaming back images of Jupiter’s poles – the first of their kind ever recorded. The probe orbits the great gas giant in an arc formation once every two months, approximately. a closer orbit would expose Juno to excessive radiation and possibly damage the craft’s sensitive equipment. Juno boasts a unique wide-angle camera, called JunoCam, designed to capture a unique polar perspective of the largest planet in our solar system. The camera’s…
