Long Exposure Photos of Fireflies Lighting Up the Forest Night

 

Tsuneaki Hiramatsu is an amateur photographer currently living in Okayama, Japan. For the last few years, Tsuneaki has ventured outside of the city centre into the forests of Japan to capture the flight paths of fireflies at night.

To achieve the dreamlike images, Tsuneaki takes a series of 8 second long exposure photographs. He then digitally merges all of the individual photographs into the stacked images you see below. The fireflies light up the forest night and Tsuneaki is there to witness it all and share it with the rest of the world to appreciate.

These are the most recent images in Hiramatsu’s ongoing series. The Sifter first featured the photographer’s amazing work back in May 2012.
