Photographer Edward Horsford is the genius behind these photos of water balloons popping in slow motion (well, captured by an extremely high-speed camera). Who would have thought that a water balloon could be so beautiful?
The images are captured using a Nikon D200 at 1/40,000th of a second with a sound trigger to capture an image whenever the pop is heard. For added effect the water in the balloons was colored to create a magical explosion!
We love art in unexpected places!
