There have been some amazing images circulating this past week, and I thought I’d share three bits of visual inspiration that were especially interesting. Also, apropos enough, all three of these phenomena would likely require a tripod to be accurately captured.
1. These mystery lights over Norway. This incredible blue spiral flummoxed natives of Norway, who were treated to an alien-like nighttime light show that could not be attributed to the Northern Lights. What was it?! Early reports blame a failed Russian missile launch, but the jury is still out.
See the video of the lights, here.
2. Samantha Tio’s Conveyance, a photographic study of traffic natures around Asia with the use of multiple and long exposures. This series was commisioned by the Singapore Art Museum, and is kaleidoscopic and enthralling.
I like this one. It reminds me of Blade Runner.
3. Thomas Shahan’s incredible macro images of jumping spiders. At first glance I thought these were jewels, embedded in rings. But no, they’re spiders with gorgeous eyes.
Nature, you never cease to amaze.
