Full title: Υδραργυρος
Hydragyros is the Greek name for Mercury; which was then Latinsed to Hydrargyrum, which is where Mercury's Hg denomination comes from. It is a liquid metal - often called quicksilver - that is particularly poisonous.
This image was taken for a college assignment; the same one as for Neptune Rising. This is one of the failed attempts at catching a water crown, but the concentric waves came out particularly cleanly, so I decided to add a little post-work to reach this conclusion. The majority of said post-work was contrast bumps as the original image was fairly flat.
Thank-you for that, I appreciate it. Yeah, it's interesting to see the motion of water, especially in photography.
