Grossglockner High Alpine Road • Salzburg, Austria • c. 1935
Reaching elevations of 8,215 feet (2,504 meters), the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is the highest surfaced mountain pass road in Austria. Named after the country’s tallest mountain, the Road connects the municipalities of Bruck and Heiligenblut by way of a stunning scenic route
In 1924, plans to build a road over the high pass were first proposed but were met with ridicule. At the time, there were only 154,000 privately owned cars, 92,000 motorcycles, and 1200 miles of asphalt roads within the countries of Austria, Germany, and Italy. Struggling in the aftermath of WW1, Austrian officials deemed the projects too expensive
Yet in the years to come, the economic situation worsened and the New York stock market crash in 1929 only compounded the problems worldwide. The Austrian government revisited the road proposals and decided to revive the project as a way to provide jobs. In August 1930, the first explosives were set off to start construction and within five years, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road was officially opened
Upon its opening, the road planners anticipated an average of 120,000 visitors, but by 1938 more than triple their estimate were making their way through the road’s winding curves. After WW2, the number of visitors continued to grow and by the 1960s over 1 million people regularly crossed the high mountain pass
Totalling approximately 30 miles (48 km), the High Alpine Road offers various views of meadows, glaciers, and of course, Grossglockner known as the black mountain. The High Alpine Road has not only become a stunning landmark, but it has played a pivotal role in the development of Alpine roads for motorized vehicles

Health and Architecture
Architects understand the intrinsic link between the built environment, and emotional and neurophysiological responses that humans have. So, how do we draw upon this knowledge to create architecture that supports healthy environments for all?
This quarter, Research in Practice forum presents "Health and Architecture" chaired by Rosemary Burne - Principal - Conrad Gargett
Research in Practice forum provides a quarterly platform to bring together the knowledge between practitioners, academics and professionals in the built environment.

Я никогда такого не снимал, но захотелось чуть чуть разбавить архитектуру.
Это библиотека в Хельсинки, та самая, о которой рассказывал @varlamov
Что скажете? 📍Helsinki, Finland
Heavy water flow at Yoho, with a bright moon glow. This was one of the first night shots I’ve done in nearly a year, but the conditions during the trip would delegate mostly Astro shooting. Clear skies and harsh light made it difficult to shoot during the daytime for almost a week... Thus, many all-nighters ensued, driving through Banff, Jasper and Yoho, hiking in complete darkness to get some shots.
Anzeige - A few days ago @oneplus.nord launched their newest device and as I have mentioned earlier, I have been developing three exclusive in camera filters for the new Nord.
The filters are inspired by the Nordic countries of Finland, Sweden and Norway. As each of them works best with a specific kind of light or mood, all of them usually work great with any scenery. I tried to cooperate my very own matt, cold and unsaturated look and I think it turned out great. Swipe through and see for yourself.

2. Vaeroy (recommended for vibrant sunsets)
3. Sarek (recommennded for overcast or rainy days)

Unbelievable sunset 🔥

GO FUCKING HOME.
This is what my mom and I were told a couple of days ago in Paris, my hometown. This woman cycled towards us while I was taking this picture,and shouted at us, in English, thinking we didn’t speak French, to “go fucking home”, pretending she was tired of “foreigners taking pictures” (bearing in mind that Paris is literally empty at the moment but still!). She left and even raised a🖕🏻at us when I realised what she just said. But too bad for her, we were not going to let that stupid racist win this one. I walked to her before she left and shouted at her face that, beside the fact that we were both French and that my mom lives in Paris (which she even denied, as if she knew us and that we were “not good enough” to live in this city) that she was nothing more than a stupid racist (and I may have added a few very loud and probably well deserved “Fu...k offs”.) I wouldn’t let her go before she hears it. And between you and I, the whole street heard it too...and it honestly felt quite amazing. I believe it’s the first time in my adult life that I have to face such straightforward form of racism and I was so proud of myself for speaking up and not remaining silent.
Thank you to all of you, I literally received hundreds of DMs of support since yesterday. You guys are truly the best 👍🏻👍🏼👍🏽👍🏾👍🏿
In solidarity. Keep listening and learning.

ISOLATION ISLAND 👁🌞👁
A fond farewell to Comet NEOWISE.
Last night I took advantage of perfectly clear skies for one last attempt to image this beauty. It’s faded considerably as it moves away from earth and is now no longer visible to the naked eye. But thankfully the camera can still register it. After four other nights imaging the comet, I finally came away with my favourite shot, shown here.
Due to some personal stuff, namely my pup being so sick, I haven’t been able to venture as far from home as I’d like for such a celestial event. As a result I wasn’t overly excited by a lot of the images I made but I was also reminded that not every shot needs to be a portfolio piece, not every shot needs to outdo the last, not every shot needs to be an artistic masterpiece. Sometimes it’s all just about getting out and having fun. So what follows are a collection of all my NEOWISE images, some great, some not, but all made while simply enjoying time under the stars, witnessing an event I haven’t seen in 23 years.
And on that note, to everyone out there being negative about all of the comet images being shared by photographers across the globe, get over it. This is the first one we’ve had since 1997. It’s the first comet since the proliferation of consumer digital photography. It’s a rare and beautiful celestial event that’s given us all some hope and inspiration during one of worst periods in recent memory. So share those images. Enjoy sharing the memories you made while doing so. Enjoy the fact that someone may have been inspired to study astronomy or take up astro photography because of it. Comets are something special. They always have been. Don’t let others take away that specialness because they’re internet grumps or wannabe photography gatekeepers.
I bid you a fond farewell, C/2020 F3. Thank you for the show. We’ll see you in 6700 years. ❤️

We’ve had reels for around a week now. I’d love to know what your thoughts on them. Do you like them? Hate them?
Do you like Plotagraphs like this?!

I'll stick with the theme of sharing images from past adventures....this one is from just over a year ago in Badlands National Park. A storm had rolled through shortly before sunset, so I knew the sky had the potential to explode with color. So my husband and I pulled into an overlook and waited about 30 minutes. Our prediction was right and the end result was this unforgettable scene.
One of my new favorite locations!! 😎
