Originally from Manchester, UK, now living in Warsaw, Poland and Tarifa, Spain, but also travelling frequently.

I currently use a Nikon D300 with Sigma lenses (18-250, 150-500, 105) and, for travel, a Sony NEX-7 with Sony (18-55, 55-210) and Tamron (18-200) lenses.

Enough of the boring stuff… on with the show.

    Great capture ! Please, how you manage this kine of amazing shot !

  • Hey Etienne! Glad you liked it!

    Setup: four small bottles full of water and food colouring, super-glued to a piece of wood. Bottles closed with corks super-glued to another piece of wood. Whole setup inverted and one end of wood clamped to workbench.

    Execution: remove corks (because they are attached to a single piece of wood they all come out together) and take several shots! Refill and repeat!
