Somehow, we think that beauty and greatness of our Mother Nature is always out there in the open waiting for us to capture the perfect moments of her creativity...

But, we simply need to ask our selves is it only just our prejudice? What if this what we can see and what surround us, is only a small part of Mother Nature's power and magnificence ?

In his search for remarkable and stunning creations of Nature, artist Joseph Michael found and with long exposure captured almost unbelievable light forms hidden in limestone caves in the North Island.

Millions of years old formations in caves grew into perfect canvas for bioluminescence of the glowworms.

Glowworms (Arachnocampa luminosa), species endemic to New Zealand, emits light in both the larval stage and the imago stage. Whats's the most provoking in this scenes is unawareness of these living forms of how powerful and superb their "paintings" are.

Luckily, passionate artist Joseph Michael, combined his forward thinking approach and technical knowledge with his affection for unique and divine in the natural world, giving us a "peek through" his visions and Mother Nature's undeniable talents...
