Colour Collision - Amazing Water Drops
After doing the Milk meets Coffee series - I decided to bring a little more colour into my work. Hope you enjoy these. Thanks for visiting.
BTW, I don't use any sound/photogate triggers for my high speed photography. Just my camera, a pipette or syringe, good eye/shutter finger coordination
and patience, patience, patience.....
I've now added some splash images (top of the gallery) from this year. I hope you enjoy them.
I don't have many because they're difficult to get,
for every one I keep I trash about 500.
Please email me if you are interested in using any of my images.

Hi Irene Great gallery!

STUNNING. My vote.
I can't believe your patience. Excellent gallery. V. Julie
Very nice gallery! Seen several drop galleries and am quite impressed. Big ~ !!!
This is stunning!!! Wonderful work Irene!!
Great pictures. I like them all.
Some of us photography nerds (that would include me) would like
to know what kind of camera and lens you used.
Keep up the good work.
I see MAGIC....
I have never seen any thing like it before. very artistic and skilful work that gives life to a simple drop of water. I would only describe your work as "beautiful dancing drops".
Impressive gallery! =V=
I am soooo impressed! Remarkable!! V!
It would be great to create a print with 6-8 different drops on it :)
Very beautiful gallery.
absolute beautiful. well done. love that shots. big V
Very beautiful and unique Gallerie !
Some of the photos You have here are those kind of photos that should be printed in a large scale.
Very well done

Another stunning gallery. I just tried this the other day and yes, it's difficult but worth the effort.
Wow, what a fun gallery! I know how hard this is....I've tried, and failed. You give me hope. :)
I hadn't visited here for a while and I see that you have been splashing around quite a bit. Great work - you are the best.
Superb gallery...leaves me speechless. v.
In a word, amazing! v
The most impressive gallery of falling drops, I have ever seen! V.
amazing shots, i'm trying to work out how you have done it, great colours as well. V

Awesome work! I applaud your skill and patience Irene
I can not imagine anyone having the patience you must have to do this. It's beautiful
I love your work. Congratulations!
This absolutely amazing!! The ring around the drops is out of this world!!
These are the most amazing water drop gallery. I do not know how you did it. I have tried all the tricks but never get this kinds result. Can you please share your tricks? Thanks very much.
these are slick, i dont even know how I would even approach these
hat tip and vote for you
These are truly amazing and beautiful images. I recall seeing, quite a few years ago, some similar shots taken with glass beads (marbles) dropped into very fine powders arranged in layers of different colours. The momentary high pressure produced by the impact (similar to a meteor impact on a miniature scale) caused solifluxion in the powder which then behaved like a fluid - maybe you should give it a try?
You are CRAZY! :) Who would ever think of taking pictures like this? These are just amazing! Great job!
This is a great gallery! I beleive you have great sense of patient :) Ciao, Paolo -V-
Amazing work! I've given water drops a couple attempts but nowhere near the perfection that you have achieved. Well done!!!
fascinating gallery...I thoroughly enjoyed every shot........your standards are olympian!.....kudos...........V
What a really interesting gallery! Superb shots and fantastic captures of nature's physics.

I was really looking for a cup with coffee and steam! But what a treat I found here! I have passed your address to my daughter so she can a look and show her kiddies.
Great shots, very interesting captures.
Your pictures are fantastic ! You are giving visibility to processes that would go unnoticed otherwise. Love your fluids!
Possibly you would like my fluid photomicrographs too, taken through the microscope . Have a look: www.scienceart.nl
I intend to visit your site often in the future!
You have here a wonderful gallery of drops ! Could you tell what kind of "thing" was put in the water ?
These images are absolutely stunning. Voted!!!!!
To view my work visit:
This gallery is one of the most amazing galleries I have ever seen. Brilliant. V
Outstanding does not seem near enough to describe your photos. Thanks for allowing me to view your work.
Salutations to the greatest trigger finger in the world. How do you do it? Amazing!
Some of the best I've ever seen. What camera and lense did you use for these photographs Irene?
fabuleuses photos ! j'ai voté
I enjoyed viewing this gallery and others like it. You've inspired me to try this myself. Stop by and see my first attempt.
wow! great captures.
Very nice gallery
Great work! Simply amazing!
Your photos inspired me to try something similar. If you're interested have a look at:
I never managed to get such nice collisions as you do. Must be something about drop size or drop height maybe?!? Can you give me any hints how to capture such collisions?
Wow, very impressive collection. I like your passion.
great shots. can i know how you acheived this.
I really admire your patient Irene, what for wonderful images you created, I love them all, I never had the patient to do similar things, great works, best wishes, Rosemarie :-)
WOW.........effects are really marvellous!!!!!!!!!! did u imagine the same effects before shooting them.
Okay, I am seriously stunned. This and your cream meets coffee set. Inspiring. Voted.

Grate idea.. good lighiting..and perfect shots.. overall nice job
Sensational pictures und wonderful colours - great!!!!
Great idea beautifully photographed and the colours are vibrant. voted
VOTE!! this photos are great!
fascinating what you get out of this subject! I think in some cases a much tighter crop would be even better for the picture (would emphasize the strange shapes) but for the gallery as a whole this approach is obviously best.
Both this and your "coffee" gallery are just spectacular. A clever idea executed flawlessly. If you don't mind sharing, what other equipment and camera settings are you using? Voted.
Very great idea and the compo is superb
Another thoroughly engaging gallery of images -- so well done!!!
It's sooooo beautiful!
I like these, too --- schön
Very nice, colorful gallery, great idea and execution. GMV.

How in the world does somebody accomplish this??? Really great.
I don't know how you manage to top yourself! Fantastic!

great work Irene.
Irene, your creativity and skill astonishes yet again! It is always a delight to visit your galleries. Voted.
Another excellent series Irene. Really love to view the stuff you do around these creative, motion macros. My favourites from this series (hard to pick in this kind of subject but these particullarly stood out for me):
- 01_DSC_3982a_ir.jpg. I guess you liked it too as it's the representative photo. The particularly liked the colour from this
- 03_DSC_4511_ir.jpg. Amazing shape / moment inside the droplet here
- 08_DSC_4796_ir.jpg. Such a beautifully formed shape
- 14_DSC_4026_ir.jpg. An explosion of colour
- 18_DSC_4783_ir.jpg. Almost looks manmade
- 19_DSC_4112_ir.jpg. Just the perfect moment
