Cinemagraphs are not GIFs, they’re an entirely different type of moving image, and they’ve been used to great effect with these stunning moving images of waves. Armand Dijcks uses the powerful imagery of a wave just as it’s about to break, and sends it into super slow-motion with his cinemagraph technique. Using great lighting and a superb camera angle, the waves almost resemble sculpture. Via MyModernMet:
The beauty of these images is stunning, and made even more so with their subtle movement and perceived kinetic force.
