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.

  1. Such an attention to detail and capturing “it” at just the right moment.. you in your collections you share, and the artist in his snap shots in time. It really is a metaphor for life. Thank you, I truly enjoy popping in her and seeing what you post.

  2. The moon image reminds me of a science class when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade and the teacher passed around a little ball of mercury in a petri dish.
