Neon Rainbow Waterfalls

What do you get when you drop a bunch of ultra-bright Cyalume glow sticks into several starlit Northern California waterfalls and shoot the results with long exposures? A double incongruity—an awesomely beautiful double incongruity: rainbows, at night, underwater.

Neon Luminance, as the project is called, is one of several ongoing photography series by Sean Lenz and Kristoffer Abildgaard of From The Lenz, a San Francisco multimedia company founded by three artists with the common goal of “creating things that move, feel and inspire the soul.”

To capture the lengthy light trails of the submerged glow sticks in Neon Luminance, the duo shot exposures of 30 seconds to seven minutes. To achieve the more intricate patterns, they tied several sticks together. Conscious of leaving no footprint, Lenz and Abildgaard collected all of the unopened sticks at the end of every shoot.

You can see more of Neon Luminance at From The Lenz and you can follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
