Texture Gallery: Water, Ice, Drops, Liquids

These photos have been created by Smashing Magazine readeres in our Smashing Texture Contest1. What can you do with them? You can use all textures for both private and commercial projects for free, without any restrictions whatsoever. However, you are not allowed to offer these files for download; please respect the interestes of over 300 participants of our contest. Please also consider the license information attached to the .zip-archives you download from our server. When it comes to usage of textures, different photographers may have different opinions and intentions.

Some .zip-archives also contain further images of the same photographer. The file size of .zip-archives is between 1 and 15 Mb (depending on image resolution) which makes over 700 Mb space storage. This is also a reason why we have decided to not offer all textures in one single archive. It is very likely that due to huge amount of data and manual work some links contain errors — please inform us2 about them. And sorry for inconvenience.

Taken by salem harbor, during the coming high tide. The sea shall overtake the cobblestone ramp. A good metaphor for global warming and the sea rising to take over the land.

I mainly shoot reflections and this particular image is a reflection of the East River in New York City, where I lived from 1990-2003. Absolutely no Photoshop weirdness has been applied except for Brightness/Contrast.
