8000km In 30 Days: My Photographic Journey Through Patagonia

I am Jakub Polomski, a professional photographer from Poland. I specialize in landscape and travel photography.

In February 2014 I set off on a journey through Chile and Argentina. We were travelling from Santiago, Chile to Ushuaia, Argentina. Our main destinations were El Chalten and The Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina, and Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. These are well-known and beautiful locations. Moreover, the road to these places was also spectacular.

We drove 8000 km mainly through the Patagonian Desert. We started our trip in Santiago, and continued to Chilean volcanic areas Melipeuco and Pucon. Then we crossed the border and drove by the famous Ruta 40 from Bariloche to Ushuaia.

After a year, I finally managed to finish up all photographs from this journey. The following set containing various landscapes is a summary of the month I spent in South America.

Freezing Ocean Waves In Nantucket Are Rolling In As Slush

Freezing Ocean Waves In Nantucket Are Rolling In As SlushIt’s so cold that the sea on the coast of Nantucket, an island on the eastern coast of the U.S., has turned into slush! Jonathan Nimerfroh, a photographer and surfer who’s “obsessed” with the ocean, snapped these beautiful shots of slushy waves rolling in to the near-frozen beach.

According to Nimerfroh, the high temperature that day had been only 19F, or -7C. It was cold enough for ice to form near the shore, but not cold enough to form solid pieces of ice, which is why the waves had to travel through a layer of slush to reach the shore. It may look like an appetizing slurpee, but I don’t suggest trying it unless you like salt, pee and plankton flavor.

Nimerfroh is an avid ocean and surfing photographer who has plenty of other beautiful photos of the sea, so check out his Instagram and website!

Bizarrely Low Temperatures Transformed Niagara Falls Into A Frozen Wonderland

This year's winter temperatures have certainly been felt all over North America, with extreme lows and severe weather conditions experienced by millions. If the relentless cold and snow are getting you down (and we know they can), there are still some magical moments that only winter can bring. For instance, only winter weather would cause Niagara Falls to freeze over this past weekend, creating an unearthly landscape of ice.

The falling water collected and froze under the falls, creating these huge ice formations.

Frozen Cars Leave Icy Bumper Shells Behind After Ice Storm

After the recent ice storm that swept through North Carolina, spooky things have been happening throughout the state… One person captured photos of a ghostly car fender apparition that is actually a shell of ice that formed on the front of a parked Jeep.

The most plausible theory regarding how the shell was formed suggests that the driver separated the sheet of ice from their fender when they warmed up their engine. The shell remained intact after the driver pulled out because it was supported by icicles frozen to the ground. This happened to other cars, too!

I Am A Mountain Photographer And I Spent 6 Years Photographing My Tent In The Mountains

My name is Karol Nienartowicz and I am a mountain photographer from Poland. For the last 6 years, I’ve been traveling around Europe, climbing its mountains and spending my nights in a tent in the wildest and most remote places. I usually photograph sunrises and sunsets, so I would put my tent in beautiful scenery. Therefore, I decided to photograph my so-called ‘mobile home’ in the majestic mountain landscape.

The first time I stayed in the tent was in 2009 during the trip with my friend in Rodnei Mountains in Romania. One night the temperature dropped to -10 degrees Celsius, and the other night we survived heavy snowfall and hurricane wind. However, I was not afraid. I loved it and after I returned from that trip I bought my own tent.

My first tent was a Czech Hannah, model Troll, which traveled with me the whole Europe, and the highest place where I took it was at an altitude of 3,000 meters in the Swiss Alps at the foot of the Matterhorn, Valais. Within the 5 years of using Hannah, I used that tent in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania and Ukraine, the Sudeten Mountains in Poland, the Balkans, Dinaric Mountains, the Alps in France, Switzerland and Austria, in the Scottish Grampian and Trotternish.

In August 2014, I replaced the old and heavily used Troll tent into a great tent made by Polish company Marabut, which was my partner in organizing my photo expedition to the Swiss Alps.

What Happens To This New England Town Every Winter Is So Beautiful, It's Shocking

The Ice Castles look almost naturally formed, but are full of channels and passages perfect for exploring. - What Happens To This New England Town Every Winter Is So Beautiful, It's ShockingSomething waits in the snow surrounding the town of Lincoln, NH. It's a collection of magnificent Ice Castles, all made by hand in celebration of the icy New England winters. To capture it all, filmmakers Michael Sutton and Julian Tryba braved sub-zero temperatures for hours at a time for the amazing, otherworldly footage seen below.


Each year, these incredible ice structures are built and opened to the public. They're lit at night with pulsing rainbow lights. People are free to wander through the halls and passages to gaze up at the forests of icicles above them. The Ice Castle show runs from January until March, or until the ice melts naturally.

While Snowboarding This Guy Caught Something Epic (And Dangerous) On Film

While Snowboarding This Guy Caught Something Epic (And Dangerous) On FilmWhen Romanian snowboarder Sorin Radu goes snowboarding in remote locations, there is always some chance of danger. But, on this particular occasion the danger became more than just a possibility.

While snowboarding, he hit a patch of snow that started an avalanche which eventually overtook him. Lucky for Radu, he survived. Lucky for us, he also managed to capture the experience through a GoPro camera he was wearing on his helmet. It goes without saying, but please, don't try to repeat this.


It definitely is cool that he got this on film, but it's also pretty scary to imagine what it was really like to be in his shoes.
