Photography can sometimes feel stale, even when the images are beautifully captured. That's the price the world paid the day everyone's phone got a decent camera app. Nowadays, it takes a little more ingenuity to create a photograph that'll make people stop and stare.
Which is exactly what these images taken by From The Lenz photographers Sean Lenz and Kristoffer Abildgaard do. Though the images are still, they seem to evoke the rushing energy of waterfalls in a transfixing, beautiful way.
Of course, there's no way to actually make waterfalls run in glowing rainbow ribbons. To accomplish their brilliant effect, Lenz and Abildgaard utilized long-exposure photography and a handful of glow sticks. The long-exposure times, which were adjusted to capture each image perfectly, show the entire path of the submerged glow sticks as bright, colorful ribbons. A truly fantastical sight.
