Nudi­branch and jabiru

It may ap­pear to be hurtling down a ce­les­tial worm­hole, but – per­haps dis­ap­point­ingly – this nudi­branch is merely cruis­ing a frond of kelp off Gulen, Nor­way. These hardy marine mol­luscs don’t mind the sub-zero tem­per­a­tures and lack of sun­light that ac­com­pany a Nor­we­gian win­ter, even bloom­ing here at this time of year. “Life blos­som­ing in the dark” is what pho­tog­ra­pher Alex Mus­tard hoped to con­vey in this un­earthly im­age, cre­ated by lay­er­ing 80 long-ex­po­sure shots.
