Dancing Colors by Markus Reugels

Posted: 10 Nov 2011 08:32 AM PST

German hobby photographer, Markus Reugels has turned photographing water-drops into a new science and art form. These photoshots could be easily mistaken for images taken far outer space, or something from a science-fiction film.

What Markus Reugels does is combining water droplets with food coloring and creative lighting to make these vibrant images, which were only able to be captured with high-speed camera equipment.

Markus, who proudly reveals his images are free from color and computerized manipulation, used a sensor to trigger the camera because the water falls too fast for his finger to operate the shutter.

An extremely fast shutter speed of of up to 1/16,000 per second allowed him to capture detail the human eye could never see.

The end result shows how the artist is making quite a splash with his unique works.
