Stunning Photos of Dried Whisky under Microscope

The-Macallan

Although we might have seen some really amazing photos of alcohol very close in the past, however but such images are quite different beyond our imagination.

It is Ernie Button, an American photographer and artist who has produced this artwork by capturing photos of dried up whisky at the bottom of a glass. The following stunning patterns are the result of the composition of the whisky as well as fluid dynamics. When the whisky starts to be evaporated, the ethanol concentration will be increased, which in turn would promote the mobility of the reducing contact line. With the contact line receding, groups of particles from the preparation process are drawn together with it, which then are stored in radial patterns. So what we see is quite stunning.
