Editor’s Note – DL Cade is the Editor in Chief for the popular photo sharing community 500px, where he runs the rapidly growing 500px ISO blog.
With a constantly evolving collection of over 50 million photos by 5+ million photographers at his disposal, Cade shares tips, tutorials, photo stories, photographer spotlights and more from one of the most vibrant photo communities on Earth.
Each Friday, Cade and Resource Travel Editor In Chief Michael Bonocore share their favorite travel photos. Check out Bonocore’s selections on iso.500px.com.
This week’s Top 10 is full of places considered “typical” in the travel and adventure photography communities these days: Iceland, The Faroe Islands, Bagan in Myanmar, Venice, and others on this list have been photographed extensively.
The reason I picked the photos I did this week isn’t about WHERE they were taken, but how. Bagan is almost always photographed in silhouette, but not this time. And the Faroe Islands are almost DEFINED by one single waterfall… which is nowhere to be seen in the Chris Burkard shot featured here.
This Top 10 is about familiar places photographed in at least somewhat unfamiliar ways. About finding that slightly different (or maybe even dramatically different) angle on the familiar, and reminding us why theses places are considered extraordinary in the first place.
Scroll down and enjoy.
