Almost better than the real thing. Photographer David Johnson recently captured an event in Spain for the International Fireworks Show, and while there, he captured some amazing long-exposure shots of the exploding skies above him. He called them deep sea creature lookalikes. That has a good ring to it.

Johnson told Colossal, "The technique I used was a simple refocus during the long exposure. Each shot was about a second long, sometimes two. I’d start out of focus, and when I heard the explosion I would quickly refocus, so the little stems on these deep sea creature lookalikes would grow into a fine point. The shapes are quite bizarre, some of them I was pleasantly surprised with."
