18 most difficult landscapes to photograph (and the photographers who conquered them)

1. Kingdom of the wave by Marc Adamus

18 most difficult landscapes to photograph

This shot was taken from Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile. In his description of this photograph on 500px, Marc explains this as being one of the most memorable shoots of his life, with waves more than two metres high and hurricane force winds. His commitment to the shot paid off however, with the powerful waves being blurred to a soft, painterly effect.

Marc Adamus is a professional landscape photographer well known for his adventurous style of photography and dramatic landscapes.

2. Volcano in Hawaii by Alain Barbezat

18 most difficult landscapes to photograph

Hawaii provides plentiful photo opportunities, and few more dramatic than the view from Kalapana overlook, where this shot was taken. Volcanic landscapes are always spectacular, and are even more so when they are active. But photographers beware, although it’s tempting to stay as long as possible to capture the action, it’s important to monitor conditions closely to know when it’s time to leave.

3. Volcano Eyjafjallajokull Erupting by Páll Guðjónsson

18 most difficult landscapes to photograph

Eyjafjallajokull is the volcano that brought European air travel to a halt in 2010, but those who were in Iceland during the time were treated to some stunning and unique photo opportunities. Ash clouds captured against the rugged background of Iceland’s mountains is an incredible scene to photograph providing the conditions are right. As soon as the wind blows in your direction, however, you could soon find yourself shrouded in a dark ash cloud, making it impossible to photograph, causing harm to you as well as your camera.
