Michael Kenna

Photography by Michael Kenna. I have become a bit obsessed with this kind of dead silent, meditative, photography lately. I can’t remember where I first saw Kenna’s work but something about it felt very Japanese, like reading a haiku. Later I found out that most of the images I was looking at, had actually been shot in Japan.

    I don’t remember where I’ve seen this series before, but I do remember clicking through it for at least a half an hour, and being enthralled the entire time.

    Excellent stuff.

  • this is really rad – man jeff you have been finding some good stuff lately haha

  • Really inspiring, I do love how the photos feel so silent, even though, obviously, photos are always “silent”, but there just seems to be still that transends (sp) whenever I look at photos such as, and in some ways these are more gripping than photos cluttered and colorful! ;)

An Elaborate Snow Drawing by Artist Sonja Hinrichsen

Another incredible snow drawing by artist Sonja Hinrichsen (previously featured here)! Made in the snow covering Lake Catamount in Colorado last year, the site-specific piece pays homage to the Yampa River which used to run through the valley.

Helped along by roughly 50 community participants, the group’s route not only coincides with the course the original river took, the abstract designs created from their tracks in the snow mimic the meandering flow of water. See more images of “Yampa River” below!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.
