Exploding flowers!

Exploding flowers!

Normally we don't advocate violence against plants, but in this case we'll have to make an exception as the results are pretty spectacular.

Part art, part science experiment, these images are titled Rapid Bloom and have been created by Martin Klimas, a German photographer. So how does he get these images? Well it's pretty interesting. First the flowers are dropped into liquid nitrogen, then he shoots them with an air gun. The moment of explosion is captured with a high speed camera.

Kilmas also has an amazing series of photographs featuring vases of flowers, this time it is the vase that has been shot and the image is captured just as it starts to disintegrate after impact. It makes for a very powerful scene, of a very ordinary object.
