Because of coronavirus some of us might have been stressed these past weeks. To take a break of this stress we’re about to show you
Nature is so amazing, is creative and alive, this means that we should never stop marveling at its miracles. Every season has its own natural phenomena, but this time we are stopping at the magical winter. Winter’s cold weather gives so many challenges to photographers, everything looks so unique and even uninteresting landscapes can be turned into magical and surreal scenes.
Eric Gross from Colorado, US is a landscape, is a photographer who’s in search of unseen natural gems in North America and beyond. He journeyed to Dream Lake in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park, back in February. He arrived that first morning before sunset, and he saw there a dozen other photographers wandering around, and taking pictures. So he moved away to a more secluded part of the lake for a unique perspective. He said: “While much of the lake was simply bumpy, one small section near the shore actually had what looked like frozen waves with sharp edges, hard curves, and steep sides. I couldn’t explain what I was seeing, so while trying to imagine how ‘frozen waves’ could occur, I started shooting. And shooting, and shooting.”
His Instagram post described the unique moment as wind-swept waters frozen in time looking like a pool of liquid metal. His second photoshoot of the majestic lake and mountains began making headlines soon after posting. And you’ll be surprised to learn that such masterful photography actually has somewhat humble roots: “In early 2014, I began doing copywriting work from home. By September, I had saved up enough to road trip, while continuing to work, across North America. Before that, I had randomly gotten two basic photography gigs and used the money to buy a basic DSLR camera kit.”
When Eric started traveling, he started learning how to use the camera, and he started creating beautiful natural landscapes across the country, his “entire mindset shifted from traveling for adventure to traveling for natural landscapes and photography.” He also explained that the lesson he learned from the experience was that one cannot plan a foreground for an image, but he has to walk around to find something interesting.
