diatom-5

We’ve featured close-up photographs of diatoms before, and as explained these images are microscopic photographs of algae. The patterns and colors created from the smallest organisms on earth are astounding.

But saying that they are microscopic photographs doesn’t really explain — how did the scientists and artists capture these amazing images?

Klaus Kemp is here to explain it for us. The video below gives us some insight into his studies and artwork, as diatoms have been his professional and artistic focus for many years.

Physicist Takes X-Ray Photographs of Plants and Animals

These X-ray images reveal the tiny details within nature. As a physicist, Arie van’t Riet specialized in radiation and low energy X-rays and eventually turned this part of his profession into an artistic hobby.

The stunning black and white images are first taken using X-ray technology, and afterwards he fills in the color using photoshop, as he sees fit. The combination and contrast between the X-ray image and the color is eye-catching and interesting. Van’t Riet says that approaching an image opportunity, “Each time it is challenging me to arrive at an X-ray photograph that represents the sentiment of the scene.”

Take a look at the colorful, yet black and white images below and let us know what you think! If you like this work, stop by DNA 11 to some more science-based art!

Macro Photography Reveals the Intimate World of Snails

It isn’t a new notion to focus on insects and water droplets and all things tiny when delving into the world of macro photography. However, Ukrainian photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko has revealed a new world to us through his macro photography: the world of snails.

His photographs seem to convey a quiet, peaceful and slow-moving world that we humans are just too big to understand. These delicate moments are captured in some of the most bright and colorful scenery. It’s almost as if these images are straight out of a fairytale movie.

Take a look at some of the moments Mishchenko has captured below, and try to imagine the moments in that snail’s daily life that you are witnessing.

Photographs by Francisco Negroni Capture an Amazing Volcanic Eruption in Chile

When it comes to unique art sometimes Mother Nature does the creative work for us, and all we have to do is stand back and admire. These awesome photos, taken by Chilean photographer Francisco Negroni, show the Cordón Caulle volcano erupting and producing incredible visual effects.

Between the clouds, smoke, lightning and lava — the array of shapes and colors is incredible. As big fans of color, we can’t help but stare in awe at the beauty captured in these images. All the while portraying the intensity of one of Mother Nature’s most powerful, creative works.
