Fluid Mechanics, Stuart Hirth
Fluid Mechanics shows a collection of liquid splashes, photographed over a period of many months and brought together in one image. The splashes from a single drop landing in a puddle are photographed in darkness and illuminated with a high-speed flash to show the colours and beautiful shapes.
