1. During our camping holiday at Wilsons Promontory National Park (Victoria, Australia) in December I noticed a glimpse of bioluminescence in the surf. However, the weather was not favourable for night sky photography and I knew I had to return at the earliest opportunity and photograph this phenomenon under the stars. I waited for the next New Moon in January 2013 and ventured out to Squeaky Beach at night. The blue surf started to appear when it became dark and it was amazing to see the blue sparkle as I walked in the water.

    The ghostly blue light is is produced by small single-celled marine microorganisms called Noctiluca scintillans (commonly known as the Sea Sparkle) through a chemical reaction. It can be found all over the globe and particularly in areas of nutrient-rich waters.

    I could not resist adding Aurora Australis footage I took at Mornington Peninsula in October 2012 to create the natural "Liquid Light Show".

    The "Memories of the Moon" track by zero-project.gr was a perfect fit.

    On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

    The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

    ‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

  4. I have created another EARTHEREAL film using the time-lapse image data shot by ISS astronauts in 2011 and 2012.

    The original EARTHEREAL became a Vimeo Staff Pick: vimeo.com/adonispulatus/earthereal

    It can be noticed from the NASA imagery that much of our planet's surface is either brown or blue. And rather less of it is green. The rest of the surface is turned over to highly-lit areas of concrete, where most of us tend to live.

    Images courtesy of the Image Science & Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center available from: eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Videos/CrewEarthObservationsVideos/

    Cameras: Nikon D2X and D3S

    Lenses: 28-70mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, 17-35mm f/2.8, 28mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4

    Technique: The majority of the images were shot at 1 second intervals, ISO 200-12800.

    Post Processing:
    :: Downloaded more than 40K hi-res images from NASA for this project
    :: Image sets adjusted in Adobe Lightroom 4 (i.e. exposure, contrast and noise reduction)
    :: Image sets imported into an Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 2K 24p project
    :: Used GBDeflicker - highly recommended: granitebaysoftware.com/Products/ProductGBD.aspx
    :: Exported as 2048x1024 24p MP4 @ 35Mbps
