A short time ago I seen an article in one of the photography magazines I subscribe to and thought it was great, so great in fact I thought I’d try it too. It was simple, just drop some food colouring into a container of water and watch what amazing patterns that are created by the invisible forces.
There was a bit of work to do i.e. cropping, levels adjustments, moving layers to get the final image but it is worth it. Also, by rotating the image 180 degrees you can get the patterns to resemble a small forest of sorts -well maybe one you’d find on another planet.
Here are a couple of my attempts, I particularly like the green one.
