If you’re a fan of cinemagraphs, you should take a look at the nature cinemagraphs being created by 28-year-old Netherlands-based visual artist Marinus. He has been using frames from popular wildlife documentaries (BBC’s Winterwatch, Wonders of Life, and Natural World), turning them into beautiful animated loops that offer glimpses into the great outdoors.
You can view Marinus’s entire collection of nature cinemagraphs so far on his Tumblr blog titled “Head Like an Orange,” which he has been updating since October 2011. There are thousands to browse through, but if you want to see a condensed version of his collection, here’s a page showing his personal favorites so far.
