Hyper Timelapse GTA V is a mesmerizing project started by Canadian digital artist and photographer Benoit Paillé.

Dark Beach is a series of brooding landscape photographs that are an exploration of Balmedie beach during inclement weather. Under these bleak conditions the beach is devoid of people, desolate and uninviting. Though most beaches and coastal photographs are shot in glorious weather, David Langan does the opposite by documenting the beach under inhospitable conditions. They take on a dark beauty that would look perfect for a dramatic Victorian novel. In his website, Langan wrote about his passion for the outdoors.

Photographer Christopher McKenney based in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania has a particular penchant for depicting haunting images.

Remember the 1958 B-Movie called The Fly produced and directed by Kurt Neumann? That movie was a cult hit then, and it was remade in 1986 with Jeff Goldblum, Geena Davis and John Getz cast in starring roles. Indonesian photographer Donald Jusa must have seen either the original or the remake, since his macro photography of insects seems to be inspired by this sci-fi horror flick.
