🇦🇪The iconic view of Burj Khalifa - the Toledo building in the work. I took this photo (or rather a series of images to get the full effect of the light trails) in May from the balcony at the hotel I stayed at. My room faced this way too but the hotel had a great wrap around deck a couple of floors above my room which made all the hassle of taking a photo through the window not necessary. During my last day in Dubai, I actually went up to the top of Burj Khalifa - the Sky Lounge is the highest level that you can get to as a tourist. I would highly recommend it. Can you should and I thought that going to the 125th level would be sufficient as it was also cheaper. But it is incredible how much difference additional 23 levels have and how much higher it feels you are. I think we were at 550 m. The unfortunate thing is that I, somehow, lost all of the images from that whole day. I do hope I will find them one day... . . . . . . . . . . . . #lookingup_architecture  #architecture_greatshots  #buildingstyles  #excellent_structure  #tv_leadinglines #tv_buildings #sky_high_architecture #symmetryaddicted  #archimasters #jj_geometry #urbanromantix  #symmetricalmonster #travelErrday #hqtravel #beautifuldestinations #travellingthroughtheworld #world_vacations #wonderful_places #wonderfulworld #thebestdestinations #ig_masterpiece #theglobalwanderer #photosergereview #mthrworld #loves_united_team #dubainights #burjkhalifa #lighttrails #bns_earth
🇨🇦 As you all know, I do not do a lot of portraits but when my friend @deradu asked me to photograph her daughter for her 6th birthday, I got really excited as I wanted to build up on the theme in one of the images from the last year’s shoot. Last year I put 5 Mila’s into a photo and this year, for her 6th birthday, it would only make sense if have something with 6 Mila’s in it. I think it was a success - shooting a 6-year-old with a ton of energy was definitely a challenge but Mila was a good sport and we ended up with a great image. Thank you @colincorneau for assisting! P.S. the second image is from last year.
🇳🇱 The marina in the heart of Dordrecht in the Netherlands. This photo is from my trip last year #withaeroplan. I was there with a friend and we were on our way to Kinderdijk to check out the windmills and stopped to explore this quaint town. The highlight of visiting Dordrecht was meeting an older gentleman who was working on his boat in the marina. I cannot recall what I asked him first (probably sometime about his super cool vintage sailboat), but the conversation started and we spent 15 min or so talking to him about his travels, the boat life, the trips he took and still planning. I find that these chance encounters are some of the most memorable things about my trips. I know that I will forget where a particular building or a landmark was, what I ate and where, but the brief conversation with someone authentically interesting - that stays with you for long time. I would be interested to hear from others if this is your common travel experience as well. . . . . . . . . . #europe_vacations #world_vacations #igscglobal #bns_europe #living_europe #europetrip #thebestdestinations #igworld_global #ig_masterpiece #ig_europe #AmazingPhotoHunter #bns_europe #ig_myshot #CBViews #citybestpics #travellingthroughtheworld #igs_europe #theglobalwanderer #dordrecht #aPlaceToRemember #loves_united_europe #kings_shots #travelErrday #travel_photography #kings_villages #tv_leadinglines #photosergereview #earth_shotz #bnwphotography #mthrworld
🇺🇸 I am really looking forward to going back to Chicago in October to spend a couple of days shooting around this great and so photogenic city. This photo was taken off the pedestrian bridge next to the Bean in June 2018 #withaeroplan . My good friend and a great photographer @mehuldave55 and I had spent a day exploring the city and looking for hidden and out of the way locations. At the very end of the day we came back to the Cloud Gate and this bridge that I noticed earlier in the day. It provided a great view of the city skyline in the distance and the receding wedge of the highway disappearing underneath the skyscrapers. This is a composite of about 15 shots taken over maybe 20 min to overlay light trails of the incoming and outgoing traffic. There is a cool purple streak on the left side - that was a neat bicycle drawn cart with bright purple lights. It was going pretty slowly and ended up in at least a couple of my #longexposure_shots. . . . . . . . . . . #stunningshots #awesome_earthpix   #adventurevisuals #natgeoadventure  #longexposure_shots #longexpo #longexpoelite #longexposure #longexposure_shots #longexpohunter #longexposurephotography #chicagoskyline #thebestdestinations #longexposure_addiction #AmazingPhotoHunter #ig_myshot #CBViews #citybestpics #travellingthroughtheworld #theglobalwanderer #aPlaceToRemember #loves_united_team #kings_shots #travelErrday #travel_photography #tv_leadinglines #earth_shotz #mthrworld @aeroplan
🇨🇦 I had always been fascinated by looking at star trails photos by other photographers and wanting to both figure out how it is done (especially, how it is done well 😁) and also showcase a location that is dear to my heart. This image is a culmination of both of these goals. I was spending a few days in Wasagaming at Clear Lake (this is my favourite place in Manitoba) and tried for a couple of nights to shoot star trails. The low point in that process was when I spent 1.5 hrs around 1am in the morning thinking that my #nikond850 took roughly 150 images and discovering that I did not set the intervals correctly and my entire series of images amounted to measly 7!!! 😢 But I persevered and on my 3rd night spent 2+ hours and getting about 300 images. This stitch used 200 of them. P.S. An added bonus was meeting Rudy and @ryan.wierckx, a father/son duo who at some point ended up on the same pier doing some extreme night photography of their own. We spent great time over a couple of hours chatting about photography and Rudy gave me a great advice on visiting the Dolomites in Italy where I was going the following week. . . . . . . . . . . #startrails #awesome_earthpix   #adventurevisuals #natgeoadventure  #longexposure_shots #longexpo #longexpoelite #longexposure #longexposure_shots #longexpohunter #igscglobal #igworld_global #ig_masterpiece #AmazingPhotoHunter #amazingartofearth #ig_myshot #longexposurephotography #citybestpics #travellingthroughtheworld #theglobalwanderer #aPlaceToRemember #loves_united_team #kings_shots #travel_photography #tv_leadinglines #earth_shotz #mthrworld #longexpo_addiction #longexpo_kings
🇨🇦 I really wanted to do something creative with this old caddy I found while driving outside the city a couple of months ago. Thanks to my beautiful cousin Genya, I think we ended up with something interesting and memorable. I call this one “Stranded in the Prairies”. The idea was to transpose Genya into the early 1800’s as someone who is trying to set up a new home in the West, but, of course, to incorporate the old car into the shot - because of the rust and great patina, it really reminds me of the old bourse drawn coaches permanently covered in dust... Let me know what you think of this photo - I would love to chat about it! 😁. . . . . . . . #beautifuldestinations #thebestdestinations #ig_masterpiece #awesomeearth #discoveryearth #destinationearth #ig_myshot #travellingthroughtheworld #loves_skyandsunset #awesome_earthpix #aPlaceToRemember #fantastic_earth #travelErrday #majestic_earth_ #photosergereview #ic_landscapes #mynikon #master_gallery #landscapephotography #landscapehunter #tv_leadinglines #tv_landscapes #landscape_focus_on #mynikonlife #princely_shotz #loves_united_team #sunrise_and_sunsets #AmazingPhotoHunter #nikond850 #mthrworld
🇺🇸 I do not think Miami Beach ever sleeps... (I ended up walking around at 2am looking for a pharmacy and would not even know it was the middle of the night if I did not have a watch!). This was shot from one of the garages on Lincoln road. I was there with my good friend @stephenfriend and first we tried to get to he top level in the garage but they had a wedding reception and we ended up shooting for the level below. It was funny that while we were shooting g we noticed one of the guests at the wedding party to step to the ledge right above us and to try to take similar photos :). I guess the view was contagious! 😷. . . . . . . . . . . . #stunningshots #awesome_earthpix   #adventurevisuals #natgeoadventure  #longexposure_shots #longexpo #longexpoelite #longexposure #longexposure_shots #longexpohunter #longexposurephotography #igscglobal #thebestdestinations #igworld_global #ig_masterpiece #AmazingPhotoHunter #amazingartofearth #ig_myshot #CBViews #citybestpics #travellingthroughtheworld #theglobalwanderer #aPlaceToRemember #loves_united_team #kings_shots #travelErrday #travel_photography #tv_leadinglines #earth_shotz #miamibeach
🇺🇸 I think if ai were to name this photo, I might call “Feeling small” or “Big Brother” (probably more appropriate to call it “Big Sister” but that does not have the same connotation). This was taken at the #crownfountain in Chicago next to the Millennium Monument and the Bean while shooting there with @mehuldave55 in June. It was absolutely impossible to time the shot to have just this girl in it so I had to do some clean in in Photoshop to isolate the girl as she is the story in the shot. . . . . . . . . . #earth_shotz #igworld_global #ig_masterpiece #ig_myshot #photosergereview #master_gallery #tv_leadinglines #AmazingPhotoHunter #mthrworldnewcomers #mthrworld #kings_shots #ig_bestshotz #loves_united_team #incredible_shot #shot_flair #worlds_beautiful_photos #astounding_shots #everything_imaginable #nature_wizards #my_daily_macro #bokeh_kings #fabulous_shots #hot_shotz #princely_shotz #superhubs #dream_image #global_hotshotz #hubs_united #chicagomemorialpark
