Spending 14 years, San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon hunted and photographed the largest, rarest, and oldest trees on Earth with stops on almost every continent. And below stunning photos are part of her photograph book – “Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time“. These hoary forest sentinels are among the oldest living things on the planet and it is desperately important that we do all in our power to ensure their survival. So our descents can know the wonder of such trees in life instead of photographs of things long gone.
The Waitomo area is famous for it’s limestone caves and within these caves are one of the most magical insects in the world, the glowworm – who emits a phosphorescent glow that light up the cave and create a surreal environment. Attracted by the scene, photograph Shaun Jeffers spent a year, back and forth to Waitomo’s Ruakuri Cave, photographing these magnificent little creatures. According to Jeffers’s description, “When the headlamps are out and all you can see are the glowworms, you can’t help but feel like you’ve stepped into James Cameron’s Avatar Pandora, it’s just unreal!” And it is not easy to take photo like below. To achieve the shots, Jeffers had to ubmerge himself and his tripod in cold water for up to 6-8 hours a day. But the result is definitely impressive and totally worth it. What do you think of them?
