Drop Collision, BBE

This image was created by dropping timed and specifically sized drops into a shallow reservoir of water. The color is created with food dyes and the viscosity is managed with guar gum added to the water. The camera shutter is open and the drops captured digitally by illuminating with a synched high speed strobe with a very short flash duration at low power to freeze the moment when drops collide. The second drop traveling downward collides with the first drop that created a Worthington jet heading upward. Inspired by MIT professor Harold Edgerton.
