作品说明:
在对自然美景强烈热情的驱使下,摄影师在下雪后第一时间冲出屋外,驾车跑遍威尼托各区域,在弗莱图(Feltre)发现了这处废弃的火车站,并被这里充斥的忧郁气质所打动。

Driven by his great passion for landscaping, the photographer went out to the countryside as soon as he saw it was snowing. Driving around the region of Veneto, he found this abandoned train station at Feltre and was fascinated by its melancholic feel.

独立日,我回到內布拉斯加,前往我伴我成长的乡野农舍时,无数萤火虫再次浮现身旁。日落时分,带上相机,前往屋后那条乡野小路,用长时间的曝光捕捉到了这一场景。

I was spending the fourth of July back in Nebraska, in the farmhouse where I grew up, and there were more fireflies that summer than I’d ever seen. I went out to the dirt road behind the house and shot this using a long exposure, just after sunset.

评委点评:
“当我凝视戈壁上的这座山峦,一种永恒之力穿透我心,”自由摄影师玛丽亚·斯登泽尔(Maria Stenzel)所有元素汇聚于此:美丽并不耀眼的光线温暖前景,勾勒出完美的荒漠之景、无垠的地平线隐匿于远端、巨大的蘑菇云则萦绕山头。”国家地理美编达伦·史密斯(Darren Smith)也评论道,“顶端的云彩完美地平衡了地质和气象之力。通常,云朵在山峦摄影中只是点缀,但在这里它却成为了一件平衡物,投射出的阴影让山峰轮廓愈发有力。”

“I feel the power of eternity when I stare at this mountain in the desert,” says freelance photojournalist Maria Stenzel. “All the elements have come together: beautiful low light that warms the foreground and shows the texture of the desert landscape; a huge horizon; and a brooding lenticular cloud signaling high winds on the mountain summit.” For Darren Smith, National Geographic design editor, “the cloud performs a delicate balancing act atop the mountain, making the two massive forces of geology and meteorology appear light. Clouds are often just garland in mountain photos, but here the cloud is an equal subject, casting shadows that help define the peak.”
