Really nice article about spending more time back in nature at Le Buzz Magazine.
This Hengifoss picture we shot with the DJU Mavic 2 Pro on a cloudy day beginning of June in Iceland. The edit of this shot was done in Camera RAW 11 using different features. You can see in the Before / After view that contrast was added, and local adjustments were made. Mainly the red stone layer was highlighted, and some light spots were added. Hope you like the result.

Nice short article with travel tips by Karl Shakur. Therefore, worth to look at. Enjoy!
Stokksnes is a beautiful location which is easily accessible from the ring road. The piece of land is private therefore you are requested to pay entry fee (currently 800 ISK) at the Viking Café. If the café is closed, you can buy your ticket via a vending machine directly at the entry to the Viking Café. You can scan the entry ticket to pass the barrier with your car.
This location is at any weather condition and any time wonderful for photography but take the right clothes. The wind can be very strong and cold.

One of the most frequent questions I get asked on the gram is where I take my photos in Bali. I lived in Bai for almost two months in 2018, and it was one of the best periods of my life. Bali is home to amazing caves, waterfalls, rice terraces, beaches, cliffs, food, culture, basically…
The Haw Pha Bang temple is amazing when the sun hits the golden plates and beautiful colours starts to burn.

This is an amazing location, but be sure to be in the early morning when Kuang Si opens, otherwise it will be very crowded. You will find this location on the way to the big waterfall. Just follow the pass, you can’t miss it. And take some swimwear with you, if are while dry season here. You will not regret. During rain season there is too much waterflow to swim.
