Gallery – Water Drop Falling

These photos are high power macro shots of water drops falling into a pool of water. Magnification is in the 2X – 5X range. I gelled some of the lights to create the appearance of colored liquid; in reality the liquid is regular tap water.

In some of the shots, the water drop appears tranquil as if hovering in mid air. In fact, the drops fall rapidly — their journey from the top of the frame to splashdown takes only a fraction of a second.
