Photographers chase it. Beachgoers are baffled by it. And at sunset, for just a few weeks in mid-winter, it cuts a fiery path across the undulating waves off the Big Sur coastline.
The orange glowing light that peeks through the Keyhole Arch on Pfeiffer Beach does not have a name. Photographers describe the fleeting phenomenon in adjectives: mystical, otherworldly, ethereal. And Alejandro Corsino captures it beautifully

A drone pano shot by photographer Olivier. (Yea, that’s all I have. Oliver) He says he simply couldn’t drive pass this beautiful spot. He had to stop and send his drone up. I can understand. Amazing light, clouds and rainbow… Iceland is really, out of this world

I’ll just let the photographer speak. He says it perfect
I was lucky enough to experience two light ray events while in Upper Antelope Canyon that day. The first was a thin pencil-like beam that barely illuminated the small area we were in, and then this one on our way out in this epic cathedral. Our guide threw sand into the air to help pronounce the light, with my shutter capturing this ghost-like pattern rising up through the canyon. It is hard to put into words how amazing this area is, and to be able to capture the light, color, and texture of these canyons was definitely something I won’t forget.

Once a year this photographer takes an annual portrait of the Klatt family. The family picks the theme and the photographer makes it happen with his lighting and Photoshop skills

I read that photography enthusiasts who drive the small road to get to these mountains pays the farmer who owns the land a small fee to use the road. Trivia aside; this is a beautiful black & white pano of Vestrahorn, Iceland

When I think of China, mist-covered green mountains rising in sharp peaks and jagged edges are the last thing I think of?
Pictured here are the famous karst mountains of Guilin. They provide some of the most captivating scenery in China

Horses are not exactly wildlife in Iceland. They are domestic. Still some of them are out in the free during the winter. Photographing them in heavy snow somehow shows how tough they are.

I’ve read more than once that this bridge is one of the most beautiful places in East Germany. The photographer comments that the lake was so calm that he didn’t need a long exposure to get a nice reflection.
