Photographer manipulates the sky for stunning optical illusion shotsVika
A creative photographer from India took a series of impressive shots using the sun as a canvas.
Sulab Lamba, 21, from Rewari, India, took incredible photos as the sun went down in Goliak, Haryana state.
The young photographer has over 20,000 followers on his Instagram page and calls himself a "visual artist."
1. 21-year-old photographer Sulab Lamba from Rewari, India, captured these breathtaking photographs using the sun as a blank canvas.
2. In this image, he uses the changing position of the sun in the sky to create the visual effect that he has pushed the sun off a steep ledge.
3. Sitting on a ledge, Sulab seems to offer the sun to feed the approaching bird, which flaps its wings and opens its beak wide.
4. The dramatic anime-style combat is recreated by Sulab in this image, where he uses camera tricks to make it appear as if he hit the sun while attacking an opponent.
5. The Indian photographer (pictured) started taking stunning sunset shots four years ago and has amassed over 20,000 followers on his Instagram account.
6. In this picture, Sulab appears to be sowing the Sun. In a series of four frames, he waves his arms as if he were working on the ground, with the Sun pressing firmly against the instrument.
7. The sun in this image is at an ideal angle so it appears to be sitting on an electricity pole like a massive street lamp.
8. Teamwork makes the dream work: Dangling from the edge of a sheer cliff, Sulab seems to be passing the Sun on to someone dangling from another nearby ledge.
9. Rope: Sulab walks along a rope that crosses the surface of the Sun. Our star's bright yellow color contrasts perfectly with the photographer's shadow.
10. Two peacocks sit on top of a tree facing each other. The sunset behind them is a gorgeous pink.
11. Perhaps the most delicate of his sunset photographs. Sulab stands under the Sun, carefully holding it with both hands.
