Markus Reugels - liquid sculptures

It's pretty incredible what high-speed cameras can capture these days, but what really gets me are the wonderful ways that this technology is being put to use. In the case of these fantastic photographs, German photographer Markus Reugels has taken an overly cliche subject - high-speed images of water droplets - and captured them in a whole new light.

By dyeing the droplets contrasting colors, thickening them with guar gum to create the consistency of milk or cream, and modulating the time between drops - 6 drops per second for hat-like shapes forms, 10 drops per second for mushrooms, and 15 for flying saucers - Reugels manages to create and capture remarkably beautiful, glass-like sculptural images.
