At first glance these photos by Andre Ermolaev look like twisting abstract paintings, but in reality are aerial photos of rivers flowing through Iceland’s endless beds of volcanic ash.
When we see old photos in black and white, we sometimes forget that life back then was experienced in the same vibrant colours that surround us today. This gallery of talented artists helps us remember that.
The USGS Native Bee Inventory and Monitoring Program has posted thousands of macro photographs of arthropods found in the United States. An arthropod is an invertebrate animal having an exoskeleton (external skeleton), a segmented body, and jointed appendages. They have over a million described species, making up more than 80% of all described living animal species.
Historic crime scene photos blended with photographs of the same locations today. It’s a fascinating photoshop work by photographer and historian Marc Hermann, that must have taken an incredible amount of time and effort to produce.
‘Sea Change’ is a study of the tides around the coast of Britain. The views in each diptych are taken from identical positions at low water and high water, usually six or eighteen hours apart.
The tide comes and goes twice each day, but even when one spends a whole day by the sea it’s easy to miss how dramatic tidal change can be.
