Well …no! These beautiful colorful photographs by Jack Long are actually high speed photographs of colored water! They are captured in a specific way to mimic the shape of blooms, leaves and  pots. Each photograph from Vessels and Blooms series is captured in a stunningly precise way that took months of trial and experiments. He created cocktails of dyes, thickeners and pigments for each component of the shot and then blasted them through a customized mechanism before snapping a perfectly timed capture. You can see much more of his work on Flickr and 500px.
