Water drop cone shot by a bullet. The drop that was just released from the cone (in red, since I used colored water) is still not aware of the mayhem just below it.
This entry was originally submitted to the How fast can you go challenge.

|Focal length:||90 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/10 sec|
|Notes:||Drop release, shutter, flash and coil gun all controlled by a laptop. As you can imagine, this requires very precise timing (up to 1/1000 sec) for all events. Flust duration 1/64 using Sigma 500 DG Super flash, this is approx. 1/10000 of a second.|
