Welcome to Painting With Water!

surreal journey

- photography by Coby Beck -


What you will see on this website are actual photographs. The shapes and textures have not been transformed, filtered or distorted in any way whatsoever. Their subjects are familiar scenes and everyday objects whose straight lines and simple forms have been reflected off of natural bodies of water. The water surfaces, shaped by the processes of wind and wave action, not computer software, have created these miraculous transformations.

"...a surrealistic journey into parallel worlds we walk by everyday."

blocksThrough the time-freezing magic of high speed photography and the technology of a telephoto lens, what you will behold in each image is a single instant captured from an infinite sequence of instants, each one a fantastic work of abstract art painted by the unconstrained exuberance of natural forces.

This, is Painting with Water.
