Exploding Flowers Captured in High-Speed Photographs

High speed photography of Martin Klimas often involves around a bang, or a crash. In this case, it’s the bang that made these photographs of exploding flowers possible. To achieve the effect, the flowers were first dipped in liquid nitrogen, where the cool temperature promptly froze them. After that came the effect of a sound gun that shattered the frozen flower. All the action was captured by a high speed camera just before the flower completely went bust.
