Macabre Mud by DaveAyerstDavies Macabre Mud by DaveAyerstDavies
This is a REAL photograph of REAL mud in Iceland. It is NOT a photo-manipulation or 3D render.

Macabre patterns are formed as volcanic mud bubbles up to the surface in Iceland.

Huge single bubbles were growing and bursting in a volcanic mud pool. The bubbles grew to about 18in (45cm) in diameter then burst suddenly and the heavy mud collapsed in on itself. This image shows the instant of collapse, just a tiny fraction of a second, but incredibly complex shapes are formed as the surface of the bubble breaks up.

Suggester said; "When I saw the thumbnail for the picture I couldn't think of anything more than the picture was misplaced, because it DOES look like a 3D render. I believe the shot it's pure show of precision and perfection, as the artist sees this particular work as the representation of a macabre nature, relating it to the explosive and collapsing side of it. I believe this kind of sightings are one of those who reveal the best that living part of nature to the eye of the photographer."

Beautiful, smart, unique. The title gives a mere entry to the vast array that the subject embodies.
Excellent work: you nailed this one.

I thought this was a fluid sim because it looks really clean, but it's really amazing to see it's a photo. Nature is beautiful :D
