By his own account London-based photographer Joel James Devlin has spent enormous amounts of time over the past few years examining and perfecting the effects of moving light through long exposure photographs. In the amazing photos above Devlin has experimented with lights on various bodies of water in a series called Light Waves and Dark Currents and the others are the result of 50-minute exposures of airplane trails over the skies of London.
