Otherworldly Landscape Photography

Have you ever seen an aerial shot of a meteor shooting through the sky? Using an underexposed fisheye lens, photographer John Colbensen captured the outstanding galactic image, above, right from his airplane seat. The Norway native never misses a chance to put his expert photography skills to use. His portfolio boasts a range of versatility that leaps from landscapes and seascapes to macro and fine art photography.

Colbensen's work captures the quiet elegance of natural lands. Some of his work is so extraordinary that it looks like a painting produced from one's imagination. In addition to his stylized landscape images, the dexterous photographer's macro photography resonates a hauntingly beautiful abstractness. As a whole, Colbensen's work is otherworldly and absolutely mesmerizing.
