Heinz Maier may have only begun his adventures in photography a year ago but he’s already won many fans with his incredible high-speed snapshots of water droplets making splashes. Many of the splashes look like weird toadstools, umbrellas and other everyday objects – particularly hats.

Some of the photos look as though they might have come from a hatter’s design book, but others are a bit more abstract – so you might need a little more imagination to discern the objects they resemble!

In this image, some (like photographer Heinz Maier) are reminded of a water tower, but we see a child wearing a red tuque hat and snowsuit… All ready for play now that winter is on its way!

For someone who is so new to his art, Maier seems to have quickly developed a deep understanding of high-speed photography: “I’ve been photographing since the end of 2010,” he explains. “I photograph in my free time; that is the best way for me to relax.”
