The 10 Most Stunning Photo Blogs


So let me take you on a short trip and know that it was very difficult to select only 10 destinations for your mind. I will start with those blogs I’ve been following for years and will go down to those I have discovered only recently.

What makes it so stunning?

[daily dose of imagery] has been around since July 4th 2003, featuring one photo on each and every day ever since. The photographer lives and works in Toronto. The city and its surroundings are the subject of most of his photographs, but he also shares the views from his travels. The blog has won several awards and not only is almost every photo stunningly beautiful, but almost all shots also show an interesting perspective, a unique technique or skillful photo editing.

What makes it so stunning?

Incredible pictures from all kinds of objects, landscapes, cities, materials or people, and always catching special moments or perspectives. Sometimes the subject is abstract, sometimes clear and always simply beautiful.

c h r o m a s i a

What makes it so stunning?

It’s the variety of subjects combined with the soothing effect the pictures have on me. The pictures are rich in expressions with carefully composed contrasts and colors. A pleasure to the eyes.

Daily Walks

What makes it so stunning?

The idea of all the beautiful things that are out there. There is so much to discover on something as simple as a walk around your own neighborhood - every single day. And the pictures reveal skill. The skill in spotting and catching these wonderful moments and of course editing them to reveal their full beauty.

Deceptive Media

What makes it so stunning?

The perspective. Not always, but often pictures on this blog are of textures or patterns or very tiny sections of something bigger. The pictures are often puzzling and don’t always reveal the subject. Then sometimes they are surprisingly clear and you wonder whether there is a riddle hidden in the pixels.

Pixeldreamer

What makes it so stunning?

Before and after versions of edited photos. These photos reveal a lot about what is possible with today’s technology. Photos that looked dull and ordinary before, have become amazingly sharp and stunning pieces of art.

these fleeting moments

What makes it so stunning?

Photos like memories. Dreamily, romantic, elapsed. Floating and fleeting.

Roumi Photos

What makes it so stunning?

Like in the previous blog, it’s the mood of the photos that makes this blog so special. It reminds me of old science fiction movies. The future and yet the past. But the blog has mood swings and so it never gets boring.

accessible

What makes it so stunning?

The scenery, the light, the atmosphere. Carefully composed photos of calendar quality, adorable colors, wonderful contrasts, interesting light and perfect post processing.
