While some photographers are busy occupying themselves with shots of controlled exploding paint and underwater paint clouds, Cliff Briggie has decided to experiment with something a little different. He mixes vibrant paint colors with water and ice to create canvases that are out of this world. Cliff Briggie's camera flashes then livens up the colors even more.

Based in West Hartford, Connecticut, Cliff Briggie deals mainly in macrophotography. He says, "A photograph FREEZES the moment. Ice, light, and water move, morph, flash, and change. Little pieces of paint take on a life of their own, suddenly exploding, colors streaming everywhere -- CLICK -- and then, they are gone forever. It is at once so breathtaking, heartbreaking, and compelling that I have missed more than a shot or two." Stats for Unearthly Paint Macrophotography Trending: Older & Warm
