Stunning photography by Etienne Francey with spray water and butterflies

Photographer uses water splash to capture stunning images of butterflies

A 19-year-old high school student from Switzerland created a series of stunning pictures of butterflies against a magical backdrop of sprays of water, turning his back on fancy filters and photoshop trickery.

The photographer, Etienne Francey, waited patiently to capture each atmospheric moment while the butterflies stayed still. Instead of using computer effects, he simply sprayed water to enhance the blurred areas and partly covered the camera lens to produce the ethereal effect.

Pools of Recycled Motor Oil Reflect Spectacularly in Switzerland’s Bellelay Abbey

Pools of Recycled Motor Oil Reflect Spectacularly in Switzerland’s Bellelay Abbey

Inside Switzerland’s Bellelay Abbey, two intriguing pools of recycled motor oil create serene, unbroken reflections of soaring architecture. The chapel’s ornately decorated arches and vaulted ceilings are mirrored in vivid detail on the oil’s rich, glassy surface. Unlike reflections in water, the oil pool minimizes glare and lets viewers gaze deeply into the images.

The addition of the oil pools to the chapel is interesting because it contrasts light and dark in a striking juxtaposition. The oil’s shimmering black surface boldly complements the chapel’s pristine, white-washed walls. The pools were added to the church as part of an art installation by Swiss artist Romain Crelier in 2013. Along with creating a feeling of augmented spaciousness, the reflection pool offers another serene element that inspires introspection.
