I ran across this amazing high-speed photographer named Markus Reugel. Below are some photos from his Flickr gallery, aptly titled “Liquid Splashes”.

Scroll down to the bottom to see just how he makes these spectacular photos. For materials, he uses everything from fog & smoke, to water, to LED lighting, to milk – and of course, colouring. By synchronizing all of this, he is able to capture the spontaneous beauty of every drop.
