We stumbled upon these photos today, a handful of the hundreds of beautiful shots included in the High Speed Photography pool on Flickr. The group consists mostly of droplets and an assortment of liquids frozen in time, all shot with “1/10000th Second Flash Exposure or Faster”. But our favorites are these by Alan Sailer that capture scenes a little less serene: bullets as they enter and exit (and destroy) their targets. The bottom photo shows “orange jello experiencing small scale hydrodynamic shock from a .177 pellet”. (If you ever wondered what that would look like…now you know…)
