Read here at New Scientist's Gallery to find out fully what this model represents. Its a satellite image of the Kurishio current, the world's second strongest current after the Gulf stream. Here, fast moving water (red) forms geometrical structures reminiscent of loops traced out by chaotic systems. (images: caroline Mendoz and Ana M Mancho)
...off on another tangent altogether, but inspired by the image above, these photos taken of water at an ocean pool are captured in their fluidity. Where the image above is a satellite photo taken at great distance the images below are frozen moments of that fluidity as recorded by my camera whilst standing next to the pool. The first 2 images below are magnified a little. The flow of forms is engrossing, even hypnotic to observe.
