These gorgeous pictures are about both the artistry of the photographer and the content of the image. And it’s more than frustrating that for so many of them, I don’t know who the photographer is. Still, they are too wonderful not to share.
Please don’t skip the amusing video near the end: NATURE You might have to watch it twice because you don’t want to miss the footnote-like words floating like the warning on a typical ad. A slightly longer video of seven minutes by master photographer Louie Schwartzberg is worth the time. Given as a TED talk, he demonstrates speeding up nature with time lapse photography, slowing it down with high speed cameras, peering into the minute with electron microscopes so powerful you can see DNA and even carbon atoms. Enjoy.
