Instants: Master of Landscapes

In our new series “Instants,” the Proof staff brings you a snapshot of recent dispatches from the @natgeo Instagram feed. Follow us to experience more from National Geographic on Instagram.

Looking at Jim Richardson‘s archives, it’s almost impossible to imagine him taking a bad photograph. He’s the quintessential landscape photographer, always finding the best light and mood to make a static landscape come to life.

He’s funny to boot, as seen in his photographer video interview.

Richardson has been increasingly experimental with smartphone photography. Last year, he tested out the new iPhone 5s camera in Scotland for Proof. He’s currently on the road in Singapore and Hong Kong, making the most of the beautiful architecture and cityscapes. Here’s some of our favorite images from a variety of his travels.

Evening falls over the Marina Bay Hotel swimming pool some 57 stories above Singapore. One of Singapore’s most distinctive architectural innovations.

Approaching Inverie on the Knoydart peninsula of Scotland a couple of years ago we were treated to a stonking rainbow that I’ve never had a chance to share before. So here it is as Sunday morning eye candy.

Farmers in the Palouse of Washington are part of the huge expansion of industrial scale agriculture that transformed much of our planet after WWII.

Looking onto the bay at Inverie near Mallaig on the Scottish coast. Shot on assignment in Scotland aboard The Lord of the Glens with National Geographic Expeditions.
