Lovely timelapse and drone tour takes you through the remote Kimberley Region of Western Australia - something in here for everyone who follows this page, from saltwater crocodiles to timelapse night sky shots to outcrop and waterfalls. Original video caption:
Click HD for better resolution and don’t stop the video after the main feature. There is still a “behind the scenes” after it.
Phidippus Putnami, adult female. Definitely an old girl, fat and slow, with far more curiosity than fear when it comes to humans - a strange phenomenon that occurs when housing salticids for any length of time. While often incredibly invasive and a illusive in nature, once familiarized with human beings they seem to understand the lack of threat when dealing with those feeding, photographing, and studying them. This subject was quite small for this species, warranting high magnification and stacking in these photos, which were shot with a 24mm Nikkor reversed by itself, and on tubes (the former simple 2-3 shot stacks, the latter of which demanded 4-6 shot stacks).
From the photographer: “Panoramic view of Aurora over Gatastakkur. Moonset, Jupiter and an agitated Arctic Ocean. Nikon D4 defiltred - panoramic of 4 pictures - Nikkor 14-24mm at 14mm f2,8, ISO 5000, 6 seconds"
Tsuetate is an onsen or hot springs resort in Kumamoto prefecture in Kyushu. Built very densely on the steep banks of river Tsuetate, the alleys and streets of the town feel like internal spaces. Seemingly random and creative assemblies of pipes and various obscure pieces of infrastructure distribute the natural hot spring water from the surrounding mountains to the many ryokans in the town.
