In these stunning, perfectly timed photos, the New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis appears to play basketball with the sun as the ball.

Red Bull tagged the Pelicans' Anthony Davis to appear in this surreal shoot based on the NBA-wide attention he garnered this past season. Davis took the New Orleans Pelicans to playoffs for the first time in four years. Individually, he scored a player efficiency rating of 30.8, which has only been exceeded by three players in basketball history: Wilt Chamberlain, LeBron James and Michael Jordan.

To create this impressive series of photos, photographer Dustin Snipes had to create a minute-by-minute choreography of poses. Each pose had to be timed correctly in order to capture the sun at a certain position in the sky -- as tricky a challenge as the ones Davis faces on the NBA court.
