Never would you have thought tea photography would be so mind-blowing. Michael Davies, an ontario based photographer has captured the phenomenon of turning hot water into a cloud of ice crystals. Science tells us when you toss hot water into the air at subzero temperatures it rapidly turns into ice. Davis was about 20km south of the Artic Circle when he hurled hot tea into -40°C weather.

“Prepared with multiple thermoses filled with tea, we began tossing the water and shooting”

“Nothing of this shot was to chance, I followed the temperature, watched for calm wind, and planned the shot and set it up.”

“Even the sun in the middle of the spray was something I was hoping for, even though it’s impossible to control”
