A creative photographer from India has captured a series of impressive pictures using the sun as his canvas.

The young photographer has more than 20,000 followers on his Instagram page and describes himself as a ‘visual artist’.
Photographer Sulabh Lamba, 21, from Rewari, India, captured these breathtaking photos using the sun as his blank canvas
In this image he uses the shifting position of the Sun in the sky to create the visual effect that he had pushed the sun off of a steep ledge
Sitting on a ledge, Sulabh appears to be offering up the sun to feed an incoming bird that is flapping its wings and has its beak open wide
A dramatic anime-style fight is recreated by Sulabh in this image where he uses camera tricks to make it look like he has kicked the Sun in an attack against an opponent
In one stunning picture, Sulabh appears to be carrying the Sun on his shoulders, with his arms held out wide.
Another sees him ‘pushing’ the Sun off of a sheer drop and walking away.
Commenting on his work, Sulabh said: ‘A perfect silhouette should convey the feelings without showing facial expressions.
‘The one in which a strong man seems to be struggling to push the sun does this with ease. It is a favourite of mine.
The photographer from India (pictured), started taking the striking images of the sunset four years ago and has amassed more than 20,000 followers on his Instagram account
In this picture, Sulabh appears to be sowing the Sun. In a series of four snaps, he swings his arms as if working away on the ground while keeping the Sun firmly tucked into his tool
The Sun is perfectly angled in this picture so that it appears to be sitting on an electricity pylon, like a massive streetlight
Teamwork makes the dream work: While dangling from the edge of a sheer drop, Sulabh appears to pass the Sun over to someone dangling from another nearby ledge
Tightrope: Sulabh wanders across a tightrope that cuts across the surface of the Sun. The bright yellow of our star contrasts perfectly with the shadow of the photographer performing his balancing act
Two peacocks perch on top of a tree facing each other. The Sunset behind them is a glorious pink colour
In arguably the most delicate of his sunset photos. Sulabh stands beneath the Sun, carefully holding it between his two hands
‘My feelings during a sunset are too intense to describe in a few words.
‘One guy once commented on a sunset image that he is my biggest fan and every morning he shares my work with two-hundred people and waits eagerly for my new images.’
Sulabh first began taking the creative pictures of the sunset four years ago and now does so with his Nikon D5300 camera with a 70-300mm lens.
