Out of this world travel photography taken to extreme new heights

Trey Ratcliff is a blogger, author and photographer from Austin, Texas – now living in New Zealand – who specialises in HDR photography. That's high-dynamic-range to those who don't know. It's basically a set of techniques used in imaging and photography that reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity than possible using the usual standard equipment.

As Ratcliff was born blind in his right eye, he has often said how HDR allows him to photograph landscapes the way that he truly sees them. From this astonishing selection of images, I wish that all photography could turn out this way.

His super popular travel photography has been featured on BBC, ABC, FOX, CBS and NBC, and was once represented by Getty Images. His blog stuckincustoms.com is visited by millions of people every day. And it's easy to see why. Make sure you check out more of his recent work, if you haven't already discovered him.
