Breathtaking photos by Budapest-based photographer Tóth Tamás, capture Croatia’s winter landscape when the waterfalls freeze bright blue. The frozen waterfalls are situated in the National Park of the Kapela Mountains. They were formed over millions of years by what is known as the Karst process, the dissolution of soluble rocks including limestone, dolomite and gypsum. It is this that gives the water its electric blue color – appearing all the more dramatic when frozen.

Fiery installation ablaze in the Swiss Alps by Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember

douglasgordon_morganetschiember_ring_of_fire_1

Monumental land artwork by Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember. ‘As close as you can for as long as it lasts’ uses fire, smoke and sound — a call and response between two artists — as a reference to the well-known history of yodeling in this particular area.
The large-scale, site-specific sculpture has been created in response to the landscape of Gstaad. Upon visiting the beautiful but terrifying mountain site, Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember found beauty, fear, loneliness and a particular sense of melancholy. With these emotions in mind, the artists explored the idea of a lonely traveler who might seek companionship with another person in such a place, questioning whether this relationship is based on desire, fear or excitement of the unknown.
The fiery land art is on view as a part of Elevation 1049 through March 19, 2017.

Helsinki-based illustrator Antanas Gudonis created this fantastic images here as part of a personal project.

My style is a mix really.. I like classical painters for the mood and colors. I like children book illustrators for characters which are funny. Also old etchings for level of detail. Basically I try to melt everything I like into one:)
