It's no secret that I hate selfies. A photo of your head in front the Eiffel Tower, you say? No thanks. You and your friends all with your duck faces on, posing in a cool new coffee shop? I'll take a rain check. OK, and...it probably doesn't help that I myself happen to be useless at taking selfies.
But my goodness, Dr Nicholas Roemmelt must surely be the greatest selfie photographer in the world. His landscape photographs - in which he often inserts himself (ergo, selfie) - are amazing. Awe-inspiring. Jaw-droppingly, breath-takingly beautiful and impressive. And while these would be great photos even without the selfie component, I honestly do think that his presence in the photographs enhances them, accentuating just how vast the landscapes really are.
So Dr Roemmelt is clearly winning at selfies, and this is one time I'll happily concede that selfies can be a good thing! Check out more of his work here.
We are absolutely loving these photographs by Nicholas Roemmelt, not only because they remind us of how beautiful the world really is, but they are also the best selfies we have ever seen. Based in Austria, Roemmelt has some truly amazing landscapes right at his doorstep which allows him to go out, explore and then position himself in front of the camera.
