Doom Messenger by everlookphotography

Mount Ngauruhoe Tongariro National Park One hour of visibility was a heaven send . 2 days before this, the weather forecast read badly . 1 day before, I set out from the western trailhead of the Tongariro crossing with the forecast reading "Red Crater, 6am, 20mm precipitation, 80km/h westerlies". I thought to myself that sometimes you can get above these conditions yea? That precipitation came in all forms and I can guess the windspeed was estimated correctly . Moving wet white is pretty hard to photograph! Next morning's forecast did not read much better but I set out anyway since I could actually see stars from down below at times. Upon reaching the red crater predawn, it seemed like it was going to be the same story. Then, saw an emerald lake! And then it was all good - until the descent took me back into the bad weather lol. At the time this was shot I wondered if I would have seen anything had I chosen to summit Ngauruhoe? View on black naturally! and sorry about the black bars - trying to get more into the preview square! via 500px

Discover the Stars by AaronGroen

It is a pity, in an age of rockets and space telescopes, that so few people have a direct acquaintance with the stars. Learning the stars and following their nightly courses across the sky brings a deep satisfaction born of familiarity with something both ancient and ageless. — Richard Berry, Discover the Stars, 1987 Prints - via 500px

The Straight And Narrow by williampatino

Scripps Pier La Jolla - I drove around some of the US and Canada back in 2013 with my wife. It was a trip of a lifetime which has given us many cherished memories. One special moment was shooting sunset here at Scripps Pier. We had two nights here which coincidentally lined up with the rare time of year when, for 3 days, the sun sets directly down the pier. There were about 30 photographers here with me, all stacked on top of each other to get the shot. Such a fun time. via 500px

Flowers of the Dolomites by DominikKisskalt

The picture was taken during a hike on the Bindelweg . A classic due to its glorious views of the Marmolada ( the highest mountain of the Dolomites ) . Accordingly it is very crowded. This is the view over the ridge into the flanking valley with views of the Sella Group and Passo Pordoi. (A driving heaven if you do not get stuck behind one of the many buses or caravans ) These are three exposures. One short focused on the foreground. One short exposure for the middle and one long exposure for the clouds. Thank you for your support. Follow me on: Facebook google+ flickr via 500px

Anthocyanin Trees by Rich_Devant

**Anthocyanin Trees** SInce i've been taken so many autumn pictures, i decided to look into the science behind why leaves change color and found out it's due to Anthocyanins. This was shot in Wilmington, Delaware. via 500px

Where the Glow Goes by Pcoskun

This is quickly becoming a classic scene in the narrows, however, this might have been my favorite image from the entire day I spent in there. The way the light was reflecting on the wet canyon walls, and the glow emanating in the distance paired nicely with the swift moving waters of the virgin river. This was probably the only spot I thought I might have fallen in as the current was quite swift, but the capturing the combination of textures and light and standing in this spot were worth any price I might have paid. via 500px
