Burning Man 2014 is beginning right now in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. I’d heard that the festival had grown exponentially in recent years, but I had no clue it was this insane.
Vimeo user Roy Two Thousand has compiled a bunch of incredible time-lapse footage from last year’s festival that you have to see to believe.
Watch “Lake Of Dreams” below!
Here are some absolutely gorgeous sculptures by artist Kim Kei. She alters found objects and natural debris, through painting and sculpting them. She photographs various iterations of these pieces, and the photographs become finished works as well as provide the foundation for her paintings.
I enjoy looking at her paintings but there is something so striking about these photos of the sculptures. Another fine example of the amazing work being submitted to our August Submissions post. See lots more images below!
I’d seen this image floating around of lightning striking while a volcano is erupting but didn’t know who shot it, and I wasn’t even sure it was real. It was such an epic photo that I could actually hear the theme song to Highlander as I stared at it. It had to be real.
It is real, and thanks to Spoon and Tamago, I can tell you the photographer is Takehito Miyatake. It appears a lot of his work involves capturing the wild natural light of Japan. Take a look at some more images below!
