Right between Chile and Peru rests a relatively unknown desert known as the Atacama. Although it’s not exactly what you would call tiny (its area is over 41,000 square miles), it is not as well known as the Mojave or the Sahara. Even so, the Atacama has a certain claim to fame which often gets mistakenly attributed to the Sahara – it is the driest desert in the world.
If you’re planning on visiting Australia, bring your wellies and mac along with your bikini. Weather is nothing if not dramatic in the Land Down Under.
At first glance, this fish seems pretty unremarkable. But upon closer inspection, it gets more interesting, since it’s really part sculpture and part painting. (Actually, inspect it all you like; it’s still going to look like a real fish.) Singapore-based artist Keng Lye manages to give aquatic life just as much grace as nature, and has been creating an entire series in his hybrid art form of resin painting, which accentuates the beauty of colorful sea creatures while also hinting at deeper questions about life and death.
Lye graduated from Singapore’s Nanyang Academy with a diploma in graphic design, and started his own graphic design company back in 1995. He decided to make a life-altering decision to pursue resin art in 2011 – after he discovered a different artist in the same discipline named Risuke Fukahori. Lye’s inspiration for his resin fish series is based on nostalgia; re-creating the aquatic life he used to catch as a kid.
We don’t typically think of a place called “Death Valley” as a pocket of earthly grace. And yet, treespeedphoto has managed to do just that with this time lapse.
