The Best Landscape Photographer You've Never Heard Of

I adore a good landscape image. And it goes without saying that few things can take your breath away quite like an incredible image of mountains, valleys, spires, oceans, even castles and cities.

There's little debate that Iceland remains one of the most sought after locations for landscape photography and this new video from Lytro further emphasizes why that is.

Eric Hines, Michael Shainblum, Drew Geraci, and Joe Capra are just a few of the names on the "CodeX" roster.

While there, the Icelandic eruption occurred and Crosland was ready with a Phase One.

Watch the Cityscape of Boston Dance Along to Music in this Unconventional Timelapse

Making a timelapse stand out is getting more and more difficult.

This "layer timelapse" by Julian Tryba goes in a totally different direction than most lapses, ignoring the general perception of time.
