Danny McShane’s Flickr Photostream features subtle hues, muted tones, rainbow swept forests and shorelines complimented by very attractive young models. I would imagine capturing those photos was a very good time indeed.

There is a kind of subtle restraint happening throughout the photos logged at through the Tumblr page of Paulushaus. Each photo feels like it was captured on the spur of the moment although almost every composition looks like it was considered beforehand in order to achieve a harmonious balance.

Photographer Nick Meek’s work ranges from light and beautiful to dark and mysterious but it all comes wrapped in a strange mystical air. There are many memorable images in his portfolio and it makes it nearly impossible to choose just one to show in a blog post.

You do well to remember the name Louis Lander-Deacon who at the age of 17 is responsible for some absolutely beautiful images. His photography taps into the subconscious in a way that a much older an more accomplished artist could only hope for over the course of a career. There’s no telling where he will go but it will definitely be fun to watch him get there. Keep an eye out.

‘The Mountain’ was filmed between the 4th and 11th of April 2011 at El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain and the home of the Teide Observatory. “The goal (of Terje Sorgjerd) was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide.” We may toil and labor after our complicated creations but nothing ever comes close to nature doing as it does.
