28+ Before & After Pics Showing How The World Has Changed Over Time By Re.Photos

It Took Me 6 Months To Finish This Time Lapse Video Of Lithuanian Night Sky

I am Tadas Janušonis, a photographer from Lithuania, and I’m crazy about the night sky. This video is made only from single photographs and it took me nearly half a year to complete. I have spent hundreds of hours camping, hiking and photographing in the total darkness and I took thousands of photos. Lithuanian sky is very unique because it has very little light pollution compared to the

This Village Without Roads Is Straight Out Of A Fairytale Book

The whole trip took 12 days and we drove more than 3500km. We slept our nights mostly in a wind beaten tent that was definitely not suitable for winter camping in Norway. One windy night we found shelter from an abandoned camping site and g

10+ Scandinavian Houses With Green Roofs Look Straight Out Of A Fairytale
