Slivers of Time

I started off with water, which has an amazingly jewel like quality as the light reflects off it and refracts through it.
 Water was a bit too clear, and as a consequence somewhat difficult to separate from the background.  I moved on to milk.  Milk works quite well for photographing splashes and drops as it is opaque and more viscous than water.
My first milk crown!



 'Solar System'
I love the little planets just hanging there in space.

 I was using an external flash to get some very short exposure times for photographing drops and splashes.  I was using a Canon Speedlite 480ex II at 1/64th power, if it is the same duration as the 580ex II then I had an exposure of about 1/31,000th of a second.
