Underwater Dog Photographer Helping Shelter Pets Pet photographer Seth Casteel enjoys the unexpected. And that’s a good thing, since his photos of dogs—taken as he plays underwater with them—have become a viral overnight success. Casteel’s underwater photos reveal surprising emotions: a Labrador Retriever menacingly bares his teeth, a Bulldog looks wide-eyed in astonishment, and a Border Collie appears slightly goofy as she dives after a tennis ball. “My whole thing is that I do what the pets like to do. Casteel first dove into a pool with a dog when he was taking photos of Buster, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Casteel started shooting more underwater photos of dogs and eventually splurged to buy an underwater housing for his camera. Fast forward to this past February when his underwater dog photos suddenly exploded online. Since then, Casteel has been running with the big dogs. He’s had to turn down private clients through his pet photography company, Little Friends Photo.

Winter in the Carpathian Mountains [20 Pics Winter in the Carpathian Mountains [20 Pics] Jan 9 2014 The Carpathian range spans 1,500km and holds one third of all the plant species in Europe. It's a home to many animal species such as brown bears, wolves, chamois and lynxes. Photos by Alexander Kotenko. The Carpathian chain consists of mountain ranges that stretch in an arc from the Czech Republic (3%) in the northwest through Slovakia (17%), Poland (10%), Hungary (4%) and Ukraine (11%) to Romania (53%) in the east and on to the Iron Gates on the River Danube between Romania and Serbia (2%) in the south.

On a Rainy Day...Gregory Thielker's Paintings (Not Photos) - 8 Total Under the Unminding Sky We love Gregory Thielker's art, not only because we can't believe they're actually paintings and not photographs, but also because he can transport us into another time and place. When we look at his paintings, Thielker wants us to experience those moments when we're driving in our car on a cold and rainy day. He wants us to remember the thoughts that go through our heads, how on one hand we feel safe and warm but on the other we're trying to navigate through an uncertain environment. Gregory Thielker on his art: "My most recent paintings and drawings explore the sensation of seeing from a car while driving through the rain. The paintings themselves are compiled from hundreds of photographs taken while driving in rainstorms with the windshield wipers turned off.
