These Pastel-Hued Landscapes Are Making Us Long For Summer

Landscape photographer Delaney Allen is making us itch for cool summer evenings with these stunning pastel-toned snaps. Marking all his work with a trademark soft and whimsical style, the Oregon-based photographer specializes in capturing the fleeting moments in nature and has a stunning catalog of work filled with sunsets, hills and rocky ocean views.

Whether he's photographing a stormy sea against a rose pink sky or smoke against a mountainscape, everything he sets his lens to has a strange, almost mystical ambiance. An expert in recording the ephemeral, Allen creates one-of-a-kind images that can never be repeated.

"If you are using smoke, water and clouds as a subject matter," he explains to Co. Design, "you may never be able to see it in the same way." An introspective set of work, Allen manages to form an environment around "familiar, yet personal emotions", as his personal site acutely sums up.
