This Is How An Enbridge Pipeline Spill Could Cause Disaster For The Great Lakes

A thirty-second night exposure reveals streaking clouds and stars in the sky in Nordhouse Dunes Wilderness Area, Lake Michigan, Michigan. American photographer Ian Plant experiments with light sources and long exposures to turn remote nocturnal landscapes into psychedelic dreamlands. From swirling desert stars to bright exploding steam from geysers, Ian conjures up magical vistas and surreal scenes from midnight treks across the Americas. In one striking image, sleep-deprived, Ian, 39, from Virginia, USA, transforms the stem of a common desert plant into the red tentacles of an alien creature reaching up into space. While many photographers choose to take pictures of what is in front of them, Ian says he has other ideas about his medium. 'I use the night time like a blank canvass to project my ideas onto,' he explained. 'Instead of being at the mercy of the scene that's in front of me I can create the image from my imagination.'
