Photographer Vlad Lapadatescu used a 15-second exposure to take hundreds of images in France at an elevation of about 9,500 feet. He then combined them together to get this lovely shot. See Vlad’s timelapse video to see how the image was created.
These incredible pictures reveal the hidden beauty of the world around us that is too minuscule for the human eye to discern. The images are all entries into the Small World photomicrography competition run by Nikon to find the most striking microscopic images taken by scientists and artists alike. Now in its 38th year, the contest invites entrants from all those involved in photography through conventional light microscope. It’s a world within a world, within a world…
What you looking at? This picture by Nikola Rahme from Budapest, Hungary, shows a parasitic wasp peering into the lens of a microsope
This might just look like a microscope image of some strange, small life-form. But actually its a view of a massive 281-gigapixel image of a zebrafish embryo, which can be zoomed in on to show sub-cellular levels of detail.
The image is the product of a new technique called virtual nanoscopy, which is described in the Journal of Cell Biology. The process involves stitching together nanometer resolution photographs of what’s placed under the microscope, and the result is an image which can be explored a little like a Google Map.
To give you some sense of scale, the whole embryo, pictured above, measures 1.5 millimeters in length. At the other end of the scale, the dark dots in the image below are cell nuclei. Mind. Blown.
Photographer Marcin Sobas captures mesmerizing images of agricultural fields and hills of Tuscany, Italy and the Czech Republic. Sobas approach is unique in that instead of capturing the entirety of the landscape he instead uses a telephoto zoom lens allowing him to take tightly cropped shots that appear both immense in scale but extremely specific in scope.
Photographer Joel James Devlin has spent enormous amounts of time over the past few years examining and perfecting the effects of moving light through long exposure photographs. In the amazing photos below Devlin has experimented with lights on various bodies of water.
Fantastic capture by photographer Brooke Pennington. I love how brave the little mantis looks in the face of the pending kitty smack down. There’s a lesson to be learned here, surely. Mantis are insanely surreal creatures and if you wanna see more Mantis action, you can visit old posts, here, here, here and here!
