Sometimes I sit back and wonder what it would be like to be a future alien archaeologist stumbling onto earth and it’s relics that humanity left behind.

Finnish photographer Kimmo Savolainen has done an amazing job capture moments of stillness, beauty, and nature in his latest black and white series. The long exposure technique that he uses to capture the water’s movement, gives the nature in the picture an ephemeral quality.

None of his pictures give the slightest indication that there are any humans on the planet. There is only stillness.
