ChelNickHunt's insight:

I have a huge obsession with cold/winter-y places. I'm sorta hoping Denton county looks that way in a few days, but it's almost certain that it will look nothing like this! Such an amazing shot! Makes me really want to be there right now, but it also makes me want to go listen to the song "Heart it Races" by Architecture in Helsinki. This could easily be the cover art for one of their singles. -Hunter C.

A small team of Russian photographers are traveling the world and creating incredible panoramas. ... The amateur photographers are currently traveling around the world, shooting major cities and other sites of interest.
ChelNickHunt's insight:

Awesome panoramic shots from around the world by a group of Russian amateur photographers.I wouldn't have spent all those money on multiple cameras though. An iPhone would've worked just nice...or google maps, but hey it's a cool concept and i applaud their efforts! -Hunter C.

ChelNickHunt's insight:

Having done a little bit of urban exploring myself it's no wonder why decaying buildings are a destination for many people... there's just something gloomy yet undeniably interesting about old buildings. Why did they close? What are they still vacant or even standing? There are some cool buildings in this article that I'd love to see! -Hunter C.

ChelNickHunt's insight:

When you hear of Vietnam you never really think of it as a mainstream travel destination. But at least 10 of these 20 reasons actually make it sound like a cool place to go to. Wouldn't be a bad place to ad to the list. -Hunter C.

Clifton Suspension Bridge? That's in San Francisco, right?
Telegraph.co.uk
An embarrassing number of Britons cannot tell the difference between the UK's landmarks and those situated in foreign countries, research suggests.
ChelNickHunt's insight:

Is it really that hard to distinguish the difference between this and the golden gate? Being that iconic it's hard to imagine...but maybe it wouldn't hurt for some of them to travel some more around the world... or just use the internet even? -Hunter C.

ChelNickHunt's insight:

These pictures are so clear and amazing. My favorite is the one of the sunflowers in Japan. It looks as though she may have used a filter to get that gray tint to it. I also like the fact that she discreetly hides her name real small in her pictures in parts of the photo that is lighter colored. I would love to vist Australia!

An Island You Can't Even Find On A Map - Huffington Post | Travel Photography | Scoop.it
An Island You Can't Even Find On A Map Huffington Post Easter Island may be one of the remotest islands on Earth -- it is nowhere near continental Chile -- but is among the most easily accessible of these remote places thanks to an international...
ChelNickHunt's insight:

This reminds me of the island that Tom Hanks found himself on in the film Cast Away. It's a little bit creepy if you ask me. On the other hand, there's the fact that it can host up to ten people, you get your own private chef, and a choice of all thoes excursions to go on. Sounds like a perfect honeymoon! And I bet the limited cellphone service makes it all that more relaxing. I'm going to start saving up!

Photographer Puts Two Strangers Together For Intimate Photographs, And The Results Are Surprising | Elite Daily | Travel Photography | Scoop.it
Photographer Richard Renaldi takes random people he meets on the street of New York City and asks them to pose in pictures together as if they were family members, friends or lovers.
ChelNickHunt's insight:

This is such an innovative and very interesting idea! I love the reations that you see from the subjects and the feeling it gave them afterward. We could use a photographer like this in every major city! He is slowly changing humanity and giving our society a wake up call, and he does it all with pictures of total strangers together! How awesome is that?!?

Couple’s Wedding Picture Reveals An Epic Photobomb By Famous Actor | Travel Photography | Scoop.it
 The ultimate photobomb might just be a bridalbomb…brought to you by no other than Zach Braff!
The epic photograph was taken by Manhattan wedding photographer Sascha Reinking, who was conducting a wedding shoot with a German couple in Times Square.
ChelNickHunt's insight:

A German couple travels to New York for their wedding... use the city's landscape as good memorable backdrops for their photos, and of all people in the world Zach Braff photobombs them?! Sounds about right... The best part about it was how he actually turned to photobomb them and wasn't just walking by. Only in New York... Awesome! -Hunter C.

ChelNickHunt's insight:

Vienna is a city full of rich history, and these photos might only move it up on your list of places to travel. I would like to see not only Vienna, but all of Austria's other cities... so much to learn and the visual would be hard to forget.-Hunter C.

ChelNickHunt's insight:

This is an incredible series of photos of abandoned or wrecked ships from across the world. I wonder how he was able to find some of them seeing as they could be in very remote spots or even why the ships themselves haven't been removed from the areas they were found? Nonetheless these would be cool sites to visit. -Hunter C.

I think my favorite picture is the one of the cats in the front window of the RV, and you could see the Walmart store front in the background. These photos make we wonder what the stories are that are attached to them.

Jim Richardson on Panning to Capture Motion -- National Geographic | Travel Photography | Scoop.it
Great tips to catching moving subjects in a photograph. Moving the camera with the motion allows the subject to remain in the center of the frame and stretches everything still in the background, accentuating speed. Brilliant. Nick V.

The Most Breathtaking Photos From Around The World This Week
Huffington Post
Welcome to "Moving Image," our roundup of the best photos from around the world this week.
ChelNickHunt's insight:

What's most nteresting about these photos is that they were all taken within the time frame of November 23rd to November 27th of this year. It's eye opening to see what'g going on in other parts of the world. My favorite picture of these fifteen photos is the one of the ash spewing from a volcano in Indonesia. I think it captures the beauty of nature and the horrifying side too.

Photographs by Michael Greenberg Take Viewers on a “Mental Vacation” at ...
Chicago Tribune
Award-winning photographer Michael Greenberg, a Northbrook resident, provides a “mental vacation” with his prints of beautiful places from around the world.
ChelNickHunt's insight:

I like how he calls viewing his pictures an "imagetripping" experience. Another thing, this guy was a scientist for Wrigly Company... like the gum? Why would they need a scientist. I guess he doesn't work there anymore since he has free time during the day now. I do agree with him about shooting during sunsets and sunrises, it's just beautiful lighting to shoot in. Of course. I usually try to aim for sunset time because I am not a morning person. I would love a job that I could travel all over the world for!

ChelNickHunt's insight:

Here are some amazing pictures that most people will never expirence or see anything like this in their whole life. The colors and expressions Jimmy captures is amazing. I like this project particualrly because he is capturing history as it is fleeting. Pictures are so easy and necessary in remembering cultures and ways of life. Now desendants of these tribes can look back at pictures of their ancestors and know a little bit about where they came from.
