Take an egg and a 0.22" air rifle with a flat head (paper cutting) pellet. Take good aim at the centre of the egg and - FIRE. Capture the moment of omelette making with a 9 microsecond exposure.
Reason this landscape image is so looong is so that you can see the pellet making its merry way off to the left.

Enjoy,
Greg

You're really enjoying your HSF, aren't you? ;)

These are all very amazing photos and it makes me wish I could invest in some HSF's now and have a play.

Thanks guys, and yes I do love this form of photography, just about as much as astrophotography :D Now if only I could get it to pay my way so I didn't have to go on to the day job :roll:
