Rubbery dimpling

theinfill, the infill and theinfillclicks, the infill clicks

A fascination with surface tension – the ‘flexing’ of the liquid bringing to mind Einstein, spacetime and the rubber sheet distortion

The image blows up so that, should you be so inclined, you can get a better look at the dimpling around the larger leaf.  There’s quite a ‘steep’ slope on that surface dimple.

  1. It may just be the angle of the photo, but the water looks cloudy, as if there is oil or something else in there as well?

    • Well observed indeedy! It’s just up slope from a mini ditch that’s more than a tyre track and which does have some small fuel spillage of some kind. There’s no rainbowing on this puddle just the slight milky look which will change the surface tension. The plant looks quite healthy on it tho, don’t you think?
