“Dubai-based German photographer Sebastian Opitz captures the surreal and mystical look of his adopted city as fog rolls in and out at sunrise. The photographer renames the cityscape as Cloud City for the brief moments when the mist takes over and fills the empty space between the towering buildings. Optiz’s images offer a serene and dreamy view of a bustling city, re-imagining it as a heavenly metropolis in the sky.
The photographer says, “I’ve been living in Dubai for over four years now and always dreamed of taking one of those rare shots from above the fog. This only happens on 4 - 6 days per year and when it happens it will be over by 9 AM. So one has to make sure to be up on the roof of a tower before sunrise and hope for the best.” Luckily, Opitz was there to catch the magical event from high above the city on the 85th floor of the Princess Tower.
Opitz also took a time lapse video that covers a little over four hours in less than two minutes.”

“(1910) - Photograph of dirigible race in the Dominguez Air Meet, Dominguez Field, Los Angeles, 1910. Two football-shaped zeppelins race across the skies, flying at low altitude. Each of them has single pilots. The pilots stand on a skeletal structure consisting of metal bars that is attached to the balloon with wires. Spectators (or judges) stand below on the plain field watching the zeppelins race. Further in the sky is a hot-air balloon with the phrase “all in the Examiner.”” (via)
Photographer Adam Kennedy has a hobby that’s pretty unique among the photo projects we’ve seen. He photographs fire hydrants and Photoshops them into planets. That sounds random, but the results are actually quite neat.
The photograph above shows a before-and-after of what his original photos look like and what he turns the rusty old hydrants into.
The images above were taken while Scott Rinckenberger was on a 12 month back country skitrip. He writes about the incredible journey:
I incorporate photography into adventures. I carry a very small kit and try to cover as much ground as possible on foot, skis and bikes. It is through this kinetic mode that I find my images, or they find me.
