A 9-microsecond exposure illustrating the effects of a flat head air rifle pellet on an egg. This was the third egg shot and I gave up at this point as it was all getting too messy. After this explosion it took me an hour to clean off the camera - should have covered the area in cling film - hind sight is so wonderful

Impressive! How did you set it up so it would take a picture at exactly the right moment?

Awesome- I love the part at the bottom where the whites are coming through the spaces between the springs. Too cool.

Wow. That was awesome. I put it up there with the stunning videography in that schweppes add with the water balloons!

Can't wait to see more :)
