For people like us who live near the Equator, we do not experience the Four Seasons. Instead we only have hot season and hotter seasons. April and May, especially, are the hottest months of the year. Add the effects of global warming and you can just imagine how hot and humid it is out here. What can be more refreshing than reaching for an icy glass of water on a hot and humid day or simply imagining you’re splashing in a sea of water? Or how about viewing photos of splashing water and water drops captured using high speed photography?
I am a fan of high speed photography because of its ability to freeze and capture a millisecond moment that our eye would otherwise not able to see. It thus represents a combination of technical precision and artistic expression.
Below is a collection of high speed photographs of water drops and splashes . Most of them are water bullets, exploding or splashing water as a result of displacement when something like fruits are thrown into it. I will stop here and just let the pictures speak for themselves.
- Each photo is linked to the original photo page on Flickr, Deviantart and Behance Network where you can view the larger version of the individual image, view license or checkout the camera settings use to capture the shot (on Flickr only). To do this, simply click on the text link provided below each preview image. The preview are low-res version of the pictures from the original source. We highly encourage you to visit the source for more information about each shot and to view a much larger version of these amazing pictures.
Trying to capture the ‘crown’ water makes when it splashes back up, i couldnt seem to get the timing right, but i quite like how this came out.
