Swirling roses, and liquid flowers, the photography of Mark Mawson

Tuesday, 7 March, 2017

Photo by Mark Mawson

London based photographer Mark Mawson specialises in working with liquids, and underwater. This image comes from a series of works titled Aqueous Roses, where colourful dyes are added to water, and stirred around.

With the right light settings, and by taking photos at a precise instant, Mawson captures what appear to flower like objects. Aren’t the results beautiful, though? See more of his work here.

Warren Keelan, Australian seascape, and ocean photographer

Thursday, 16 February, 2017

Photography by Warren Keelan

A great photo is all about being in exactly the right place, at precisely the right moment. And getting the angle, and the lighting, and what have you, just so. Imagine for a minute then being someone who takes photos of waves. As in ocean waves.

And not from a beach, or some other coastal vantage point either, but from somewhere in the water, and well off shore. If it were me, I’d hope luck did the rest, once at the appropriate point.

I doubt that’s the way Wollongong based Australian seascape, and ocean photographer, Warren Keelan works though. Much tenacity, skill, daring, and persistence would be required here, I think. But aren’t the results, such as the above photo, spectacular though?

A swimming pool without water? That might still be fun though…

Monday, 12 December, 2016

Photography by Maria Svarbova

A swimming pool without water? That’s not a prospect anyone looking forward to a long hot summer would wish to contemplate. Yet that is the scenario Slovakian art director and photographer, Maria Svarbova, presents to us in her photo series, Pool without Water. I don’t know though, playing around in an empty pool might not be too bad.

Fresh water? That stuff is older than the Sun…

Tuesday, 19 April, 2016

It’s a fair bet the water you drink daily may not be quite as fresh as you’d think. And I don’t mean it’s been sitting on the shelf for a week or something, but rather it may be billions of years old:

It’s a mystery how the world became awash in it. But one prevailing theory says that water originated on our planet from ice specks floating in a cosmic cloud before our sun was set ablaze, more than 4.6 billion years ago. As much as half of all the water on Earth may have come from that interstellar gas according to astrophysicists’ calculations. That means the same liquid we drink and that fills the oceans may be millions of years older than the solar system itself.

Photos of the ever so slightly choppy waters of Lake Erie

Monday, 11 January, 2016

Photo by David Sandford

I get the feeling that much of the time Canadian photographer Dave Sandford spends gathering his images is in waiting for just the right moment to present itself… and these photos of waves on Lake Erie would be a case in point.

The sea organ by the sea is sort of a sculpture by the sea

Tuesday, 24 November, 2015

The Croatian city of Zadar is home to a sea organ, an experimental musical instrument, made up of polyethylene tubes and a resonating cavity, whose sounds are generated through the motion of the coastal waters that it is situated above.

Want to go surfing in the mountains? All you need is a river

Tuesday, 20 October, 2015

Are you a person who likes the mountains rather than the beach, but still wants to surf? It’s certainly possible to do both, go surfing in the mountains that is, all you need is a decent whitewater sort of river, and way you can go, surfing the rivers

Photos of what you’ll see at the water line, if you look

Wednesday, 17 June, 2015

NSW based photographer Matty Smith places his camera in the water line of whatever lake, pond, swamp, or ocean, he is nearby, and returns with some incredible images.

The story behind the photos are sometimes just as amazing as well… this picture of a long-finned eel, taken in a pond at Sydney’s Botanical Gardens, is a case in point.

Born just off the coast of New Caledonia, this eel would have made the 2,000km journey to the east coast of Australia and, one wet night, climbed out of Sydney Harbour and slithered across the grass and into this freshwater pond, where it will live for up to 30 years. Eventually, the urge to breed will take it back across the south Pacific Ocean.
