After early retirement from medical profession, Weerapong Chaipuck becomes a travel and landscape photographer. Traveling around Thailand and beyond (to China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and India), Chaipuck manages to take a peek into the lives of ordinary villagers in fairly remote areas. Rather than hitting up the most touristy spots, he dives deep into each country’s rich culture to document their realities. Hence in his photo collection, you can not only see aesthetically pleasing views of nature but diverse people within each environment as well. For example traditional fishermen who work with birds to catch their prey or local flower vendors that sell their merchandise on worn boats as they drift across lakes. Check the whole collection on Chaipuck’s 500px page. And if you are interested in a one-on-one or small group photographic study, you can contact Weerapong Chaipuck as well.

Photographs of severe weather like storm, tornadoes and hurricanes have always fascinated people. Its moody, dramatic and eye-popping images are beloved by many photographers. When most people take shelter during those weather, few photographers venture into the danger in order to record the event. There even are kind of person called “storm chaser” who chases storms to see cumulonimbus cloud structure, watch a barrage of hail and lightning or witness what skyscapes unfold. Here are some exceptional photographs of storm we collected from internet. Please thank those brave photographers who capture those awesome photos at risk of life and limb during severe weather.
Winter is cold while winter is pretty, especially when the world is covered by ice and snow. There are many breathtaking winter photography we featured before, while those frozen lighthouses are at the top of list. These almost haunting images were captured by American photographer Thomas Zakowski on a trip to two cities in Michigan after a storm battered the state. Standing in temperatures well below freezing, the 30ft structures have been transformed into giant icicles. The whole scene looks like so unreal, like something would only happen in magic movie. Unbelievably gorgeous!
It is said sometimes, science is only one step away from art. Today’s topic, Radiation physicist Arie van’t Riet just proves above statement again. As a registered medical physicist, he learned the possibility of creating amazing photos with x-rays at the hospital. He started with a bouquet of tulips. Then he digitizes, inverts and then selectively colorize the image in Photoshop. The result is stunning and he was told that is Art. Since that, Arie begins his journey to becoming an artist. He began to X-ray all sorts of atypical subjects — flowers, plants, bugs, snails, lizards — seduced by the challenge of recreating natural scenes. Let’s take a look at those amazing X-RAY Photography of Nature and enjoy Arie van’t Riet’s talk on TEDxGroningen.
