Some of my droplet collision work using the Pluto trigger and valve which is an excellent bit of gear.
The first one is playing with reflections, the second is using the strobe feature in my Yongnuo flashguns. This one was one droplet, 3 strobes at 50hz if I recall correctly.

Amazing and fascinating.

Have you tried different densities.
Cream? Paint?
Linseed oil? That would have a nice colour to it. (not sure what you call that over there? It's the stuff you can rub on furniture, often mixed with beeswax)

Have you tried different densities. Yes, and you get dramatically different results as you change the viscosity
Cream? Paint? I've used milk, cream, acrylic paint, emulsion paint, xanthan gum (used to thicken drinks for medical purposes), olive oil, cornflour solution to name a few things
Linseed oil? That would have a nice colour to it. (not sure what you call that over there? It's the stuff you can rub on furniture, often mixed with beeswax) we call linseed oil linseed oil, it does wonders for the willow as well. :)

When you increase the viscosity all sorts of fun things happen, the droplets don't break up in the regular pattern (crenellation?), they do crazy things like this (this was Xanthan gum and food colouring). I called it Zog the alien.

Using olive oil caused a new droplet to 'bud off' after the 'rebound' when the first droplet hit the reservoir surface. Timing the release of a 3rd droplet correctly gave me a collision in mid air that looked a lot like Saturn :)

Sure is amazing photography when you capture stuff like above.
Wonder what mercury would look like? Liquid nitrogen?
I'm always fascinated when they dip a straw into it and pull it out to dab on my skin and all the little droplets fly about the place.

I've often thought about doing mercury, but it would require well controlled lab conditions which I can't easily access. Hadn't thought about nitrogen though - could be a winter project for me. >>Going shopping :)

@johnfosteruk
I should stop looking at your pictures; otherwise, it will cost me some money.

If it helps, the Pluto trigger has many uses, it's my intervalometer, ND calculator/long exposure controller, cable release and burst controller. That's only approx. $20 per feature! :)

Brilliant.
Spending a lot of time pouring over aerial photos the first thing that sprung to mind was of an estuary or land spit.
