Drink it up ⛲ this incredibly cool and creative #TinyPlanet was captured by #EssentialPhone community member @atx_360.
Can you name this famous Canadian lake? The iconic blue-green lake, which gets its distinctive color from the refraction of light off rock particles deposited in the water, was once featured as one of the main preview images for Google Android. This gorgeous view was captured by #EssentialPhone community member @iv.natalya_.

“I imagined as if Essential Phone crashed into some metal object from outer space and dented this thing it landed in. A scene that would cohesively tie into the sci-fi theme I worked with.” - @lukesmk #EssentialPhone
“A small pop of color on the blue breaks up the tones and gives depth and context as to what space and dimension this photo was living in.” - @lukesmk #EssentialPhone
“What I enjoy most about Essential Phone is its simplicity and sleekness. It exudes a depth of tranquility that’s manifested in this blue lagoon scene with the white Essential Phone reflecting off vinyl.” - @lukesmk #EssentialPhone
“My first thought of looking at the 360 camera was that it looked like HAL 9000 from ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’ In the movie there were close-up shots of HAL, and the lighting that you would catch on the glass was beautiful. For this shot I added bounces and gels to certain lights to get small red reflections on the lens.” - @lukesmk #EssentialPhone
“When shooting Essential Phone I started by thinking of how to make something you see everyday—a phone—look like something you’ve never seen before. This shot is one of my favorites. It has a strange depth that looks like planetary terrain.” — @lukesmk #EssentialPhone
