Using fireworks and long exposures to make trees drip light ...

MICHAEL ZHANG, PETAPIXEL:

"Impermanent Sculptures is a series of light-painting photos by Brazilian photographerVitor Schietti. One of the interesting ideas found in the series is using fireworks to illuminate trees, resulting in photos that look like the leaves and branches are showering drops of light onto the ground."

As jaw-droppingly beautiful as they look, when I initially saw these pictures, the very first question that came to my mind: were any of the trees hurt or seriously injured in the making of these artful photographs? We will probably never find out.

Anyway, find out more, here.
