Liquid sunbursts and swirling aquatic roses abound in photographer Mark Mawson’s work. Images like these are created from dropping ink into water and photographing it as it diffuses. For the roses, the tank is additionally stirred or spinning to create the vortex-like appearance. Check out his website for more striking images, including more billowing ink, some great splashes and beautiful turbulent mixing between coffee and milk. (Image credit: M.
