Water – Part 2

Macro, Water

Photograph of Water

The shapes created by these drops while falling from the tap are truly remarkable. If you look closely and get creative, the drop at the very bottom looks like a hollowed out bowl and the drop at the very top looks like a mushroom. Also, in the second and third drops from the bottom, the text behind the drops is visible.

Just think, these sort of structures are created every time anyone turns on a tap! Unfortunately, they last for such a small time that they are almost impossible to observe with the naked eye. A camera, preferably with a flash and very high shutter speed, is needed to fully admire these beautiful structures. Even then, a matter of a few hundredths of a second can make all the difference between a perfect and a terrible photograph.
