Series of images about cypress trees. It's interesting to observe how the light could change the entire image at the same location. We've been to this little pond in Texas for many times in rain, fog, dusk or dawn and every time the place seem to live the different life.  #texas #cypressswamp #nikon #gitzoinspires #luminar #madewithluminar #skylum #lucroit
Time to process some photos from recent November trips to Cypress swamps of Texas and Louisiana, southwest USA and Myanmar! Finally I have a bit of break until new adventures to China and Japan will start.  That's a photo I made from my kayak inside one of the spooky cypress trees corridors. I recall just faint rustle of spanish moss and distant birds singing. Otherwise it was just total silence and serenity.  #texas #cypressswamp
Aurora tornado at Lofoten islands! What's your favorite destination for northern lights photography?  #norway #lofoten
Little winter paradise - Lofoten islands. I made this panorama in Reine village, Norway. Moonlight and high tide, plus fresh snowfall helped to create a "Christmas" mood here 🎄 Danielkordan.com #northernnorway #norway #lofotenislands
I've almost finished my southwest adventure, going back to LA today from Moab. Last couple of days were very snowy in Moab. Happy to finally meet real winter hiking in fresh snow powder. I took this photo in Ural mountains, Taganay national park of Russia. Climbing up here in deep snow for sunrise was quite a fun, but the view was definitely worth it.  #taganay #russia #siberia #nikon #gitzoinspires #skylum #luminar
Well, currently I feel like this penguin marching on the iceberg. This week we were caught by some incredible snow storms in southwest of USA. Those who seen my stories might notice that we've been to snowy Bryce canyon yesterday and today enjoying snow in monument valley filming project for @skylum_global and new tutorials for @shainblumphotography  #antarctica #lemairechannel
Last week I was exploring cypress swamps in Texas and Louisiana together with my amazing friends. It's simply the other world. The world on the water. There are numerous lakes with tall old cypress trees. Spanish moss hanging from the sky above you, just tranquility and silence is around. Yes, it's a bit creepy and very mystical at the same time. We took our canoes and kayaks to spend a week in the water world.  Danielkordan.com #cypressswamp #nikon #gitzoinspires #luminar #skylum

Aerial of Sveti Tomaž church in Slovenia. That little European country is a true gem for photographers. Thousands of churches, small creeks, canyons - Slovenia left a wonderful impression on me. This is a drone shot at sunrise.  Danielkordan.com #slovenia #aerial #djiglobal @djiglobal
Mongolia has magical untouched nature. I was fascinated by life of nomads in harmony with nature. Please enjoy this short video I made in Mongolia past October. Among filming locations are Altay mountains in the West Mongolia and nomad families near Olgii + Gobi desert.  Full version at IGTV. Made with Nikon D850 + drone Mavic 2 pro. If you are interested to join Mongolia photo tour next year - link in BIO.  #mongolia #nikon #dji #djiglobal @djiglobal #airvuz #gitzoinspires #gobidesert #eaglehunters #skylum
So far I traveled with my group from Mrauk U to Bagan and Mandalay. Today we're leaving to Inle lake. And still the place that impressed me most is Mrauk U. It's still without tourists at all and very natural. Unfortunately at Bagan almost all the temples are closed to enter, so if you plan to go to Myanmar don't have many expectations about photography in Bagan. Here you can use maps.me app to scout for open temples, but there are just few of them left with 20-30 persons on top at least.  And this aerial shot is from magical Mrauk U.

Heavenly landscape of Mrauk U Kingdom in Myanmar. Actually it's combination between smoke from fires and morning mist. Most of local people don't have electricity, so they just woke up to make breakfast on fire.  Today I left Mrauk U and heading to Bagan. I'm wondering if some of you were there recently and could suggest temples which are still open to visit to enjoy sunrise or shoot light rays inside etc. Please leave me a private message if you have useful information.
