Liquid Worlds by Markus Reugels

Markus Reugels from Germany uses the properties of refraction to create beautiful miniature worlds inside drops of water. Using large satellite photos as a backdrop and a high speed camera he captures the background’s refraction through water drops.
Refraction :

The change of direction of a ray of light in passing obliquely from one medium into another in which its wave velocity is different.
