    Incredible how something can be so beautiful and diverse without any interference by humans. It just, is.

    • Julia Fjelddalen

      There is interference though, without the photographer these motives do not exist.

      • Rebecca Tritschler

        What I’m saying is that this beauty is naturally occurring, and sometimes us humans like to forget that there is more on this world than the things we created. That’s all!
        Although the photographs are beautiful, and I agree that that lies as much with the photographer as much as it does with what he is photographing.

      • Cristobal

        Mhm, yeah, but what Julia say is truth. The photography is a product, is created by man, you’re not experiencing the sunrises like a natural/real thing; you’re experiencing the beauty contained in the picture, in the product. (you can also say that inself, the product, has conteined the visual aspect of the beauty of the nature, but is just a insignificant part of it). Well, is my opinion.
        Saludos.

        What I’m commenting on is not the photograph, but the actual natural occurrence of the sunrise.
        The beauty is that the sky would still create these incredible colours and patterns whether anyone was photographing it or not! Sure, we wouldn’t see it, but the world doesn’t revolve around our own human perspective.

      • lepetitfaon

        these are absolutely perfect and I thought the exact same thing as you! Definitely more to life than the things humans create. And sure someone had to take the picture, but I think what is amazing about these pieces is you’re not really considering the artist when you look at them he/she did such a brilliant job that as the viewer you are awestruck by the imagery. At least I didn’t feel like I was experiencing a product produced by man in looking at these. Which of course is a compliment to the photographer that I was made to forget he/she had a part in it!

      • documentary work at its finest!

    • Cali

      Our measure of beauty comes from nature.

  • rye

    ethereal!

  • Rainbootsy

    Where are the 589 other pictures?? I want to see more!

  • This is beautiful. The amount of dedication and continuity necessary to make yourself shoot these photos day after day is more than admirable.

  • Linda

    Awesome

  • Olivia McKenzie

    Absolutely breath taking! I’m sure the journey to capture these photos was just as incredible as the pictures themselves. Great talent!

    @dr olaf höttsman that’s so ugly of you

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
