SKETCHY SUNDAY: Copepoda
Copepods! It’s a group of about 9,000 crustacean species with a name deriving from the Greek words for “oar” and “foot.” Most are parasitic, but many are free-swimming and constitute a big part of the ocean’s zooplankton community. I remember reading somewhere that their poop accumulates on the seafloor, helping to increase the flow of nutrients and minerals from surface.

Stars Become the Night
Australian photographer Lincoln Harrison captivated the world with his first Star Trails collection with surreal swirls of stars in the night sky, created using long-exposure techniques. Recently, Harrison added a new collection titled Nightscapes to his gallery and it’s just as breathtaking. In this series, the stars seem to be just out of reach, shining like suspended diamonds in a colorful night sky.
Harrison uses the same technique of long-exposure frames to capture the brilliant movements of the stars. He shoots the night sky separately with a creative zoom technique, and then layers the images in post-production. His entire collection can be viewed at his site.
