Shooting Arizona’s Famous Antelope Canyon Is Not As Cool As It Seems
Arizona’s Antelope Canyon is famous amongst photographers. You can get some totally cool shots of flowing cave walls, running sand and shining light, but it is not all it is cracked up to be as practically every photo ever taken by everyone in there is almost the same. And there is a good reason for that.
The Immigrants Of Ellis island
Ellis Island in New York City was the gateway to a new and better future for many of the great grandparents of millions of people now living in the United States Of America.
The I'm quarter German, half Dutch and a bit of Albanian stories can be traced all the way back to those early years landing on Ellis island.
These are just a few of the images which The New York Public Library has on display of this old wave of immigrants.

Gods & Gasoline by Christopher Wilson
I love fast cars and I love racing, so I love this amazing set of photos by Christopher Wilson. They show us some of the Gods who take to the Bonneville salt flats to test their machines and themselves against nothing but time.

Diehard Detroit time-lapse and tilt shift video
Ove the years we've posted several photo galleries depicting the crumbling state Detroit finds itself in.

Chris Sharma Free Climbs A Redwood Tree
In a quest to return to his climbing roots and to advance the understanding of California’s giant Coast Redwoods, Chris Sharma recently embarked on an unprecedented free climb in a Northern California forest glade. Using only his hands and feet and protected from falls by a rope and harness, Sharma collected valuable data from a soaring Redwood, located in a city park in Eureka, to measure tree water status as an indicator of how it has been affected by the current severe drought. Red Bull worked closely with two UC Berkeley Tree Biologists in preparing for and executing this project.Read this topic >

World’s First real-time Northern Lights Captured in Ultra High Definition
Make sure you watch this in the highest definition your screen will allow.
Come along with us on a virtual experience our Aurora Chasing in 4K Ultra High Def!
Despite being under the weather, Marketa, Angus and I ventured out to capture the Northern Lights with our newest tool, the Atomos Shogun 4K external recorder. We combined this with a Sony a7S and a DJI Ronin for a look at what's it like to "Chase the Lights."
The Atomos did great and while the Ronin usually does a good job it seemed quite jittery on this night. I'm in contact with support and hope to find a resolution to this but it's done that the last few times I've taken it out in temps colder than 10ºF. Keep in mind it is very windy, I'm stumbling around in knee deep snow and it's about 0ºF so considering, it still held up rather well.
It seems we have a few things to work out both with the Ronin and the Shogun but are very excited for this amazing trio once we get things rolling smoothly.
If you'd like to be out there having your portraits taken in front of these magnificent Northern Lights, join us for a night under the Aurora.

This video is 4 years old, but still awesome to watch. It features Andrew Wonder on an exploration through some of the darker nooks and crannies of New York City. The side you'd never normally get to see whilst on a city break as a tourist. Credit: Andrew Wonder (Twitter)Read this topic >
