The most spectacular photographs ever created on the subject of water appear in this unique science book by Walter Wick. The camera stops the action and magnifies it so that all the amazing states of water can be observed: water as ice, rainbow, steam, frost, and dew. Readers can examine a drop of water as it falls from a faucet, see a drop of water as it splashes on a hard The camera stops the action and magnifies it so that all the amazing states of water can be observed - water as ice, rainbow, stream, frost, dew/5.

A child crouches beside a meadow brook, and a drop of water collects and falls from the child’s fingertip to continue on its journey. Where does that journey begin?

Reading this story I was inspired by Jake's struggle, his perseverance and ultimately his choices/5. Water can melt off the top of a mountain and ﬂow into a lake. Groundwater can trickle out of the ground and into a body of water. And don’t forget irrigation: man-made systems of sewers, water pipes, and plumbing. That’s how water gets into your house, school, or a public fountain. Usually the water comes from a lake, river, orFile Size: 41KB.

It is often misquoted as "Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink".
Something as simple as a drop of water hardly seems the stuff of extraordinary science. Yet exceptional photography from Wick (with Jean Marzollo, the I Spy series) shows fundamental science experiments in a fresh light. In a note, Wick explains that many of the experiments he shows were swiped from science texts from the s/5(8). Ok so this is weird? I am In a cloud! I think I'm in a cloud. What is happening? I really dontknow what is happening! oh yeah I'm in a cloud because I was in the air and then I came here to the cloud! The cloud master told me that I will be falling in the mornig, but he does not.
