Awesome Albums: The World Lies Waiting by grazie

Haven't tried shooting landscapes in black and white yet? Today's awesome album will surely inspire and make you want to give it a shot!

If, like us, you’ve been following the updates of our fellow lomographer grazie, you must have already seen her latest album, the wanderlust-inducing one entitled “The world lies waiting.” Much like her marvelous monochrome set that we put on spotlight last year, we love how she was able to capture the textures, patterns, and natural beauty of Death Valley in Eastern California.

Looking at her awesome album, we’re also reminded of Ansel Adams’ iconic black and white photos of the American landscape, especially since we learned that he also took a handful of snaps in Death Valley. If he were to see the photos below, taken using a Hasselblad 501 CM loaded with Fuji Neopan Acros 100 (120), we’re sure he’d also be impressed!

Great job as always, grazie!

The Awesome Albums series is exactly what it says on the tin — it’s a love letter of sorts from the Editors addressed to user-uploaded albums that had caught their eye and had inadvertently fallen in love with. Please understand though, they’re really just here to express their love and nothing more.

    If I have a set like this, I'd have it printed on a big canvas to enjoy everyday. Nice work! :)

    @kuppys I agree with you there! I'm sure @grazie is already thinking of printing out these photos anyway! :D

    @grazie awesome photos. i have to drop by your LH the other day to have a look at the latest albums. great work. @kuppys even though the pics are great i don´t like landscape prints so much that i´d like to have a huge prints of it. my personal feeling with landscape pics is that it get´s boring after some time. the effect of being impressed by a great landscape gets lost after some time. - for me i have to admit. meaning looking at them from time to time is great but having a look at them everyday makes them lose the magic. i don´t feel this effect that strong with urban pics. don´t know why.
