Neon waterfalls illuminate nature at night

Artists use glow sticks and long-exposure photography to enhance waterfalls with mesmerizing streams of colorful light.

Care for a swim?

There's something beautiful and futuristic about bright neon lights against a natural background.

In a stunning series of images called "Neon Luminance," San Francisco multimedia group From the Lenz used long-exposure photography to capture glow sticks traveling down a waterfall. The resulting pictures look straight out of a science fiction movie featuring a strange new world unlike our own.

The creators of "Neon Luminance" also used different glowstick colors and laser light for the project. From the Lenz

Fortunately, while shooting the images, the creators didn't open any of the buoyant glow sticks underwater, so nature wasn't harmed.

According to The Daily Mail, "Luminance" creators Sean Lenz and Kristoffer Abildgaard wouldn't reveal much about the project's finer details, but did say that each exposure took about 30 seconds to 7 minutes to create, and that one person would strategically release each glow stick and the photographer would catch it.
