Piazza del Popolo

The lions of the fountain in Rome’s Piazza del Popolo eject a turbulent sheet of water. Random fluctuations in the water sheet cause holes to form. Driven by surface tension, these holes grow and merge, leaving behind ligaments of water which quickly break up into a spray of unevenly-sized drops. (Image credit: E. Villermaux)
