I recently came across these beautiful photographs by London based photographer Joel James Devlin.

Devlin has dedicated a great deal of time over the past few years examining and perfecting the effects of moving light through long exposure photographs, creating something rather spectacular. The images above were created by taking 50-minute exposures of airplane trails over the skies of London, and by experimenting with light on various bodies of water in a series called Light Waves and Dark Currents

Devlin’s recent awards include 2013 Environmental Photographer of the Year Finalist and 2012 Rooms Magazine; Darkroom Photography Competition. To see more of his work visit his website here
