Incredible underwater blooms captured on film

While nature’s technicolour creations are a constant source of wonder, it’s technical precision that underpins the moment of awe in Mark Mawson’s man-made Flowers and Swirls photography project. The artist captures split second moments when colourful dye explodes expressively underwater, creating textured flowers and blooms. In some of the images, it’s the bleeding of two colours that gives drama, in others it’s the way clouds of a single colour form to create a perfect and very real looking flower.
