Meet Misha de Ridder
Dutch photographer Misha de Ridder's capture breathtaking photographs of untouched places. Taken across Alaska, Norway, and Switzerland, these gorgeous, dreamy landscapes evoke a lovely sense of peace and tranquility. These days in our overly connected, technology-obsessed, digital world, it's easy to forget about the very basic and natural beauty of these quiet environments.
In Misha's own words: "Sometimes natural phenomena can become so estranged and mysterious, that we are inclined to describe them as unreal realities. It might be the extraordinary shape of a tree, a mountain, a shadow, a cloud or the mirroring reflection of nature in a lake, but it is foremost the unfamiliarity of the natural aesthetics of reality."
