High Speed Flower Explosions

Flower ExplosionWhat do you get if you freeze flowers in liquid nitrogen and then shoot them with an air gun? Some pretty spectacular images (Colossal).

The life of a flower usually ends in slow, inglorious decay as petals wilt and succumbs to the cycle of life, but these flowers shot by German photographer Martin Klimas go out with a bang. You might recognize Klimas’ work from his wildly popular series of shattered ceramic figures photographed at high speed as they hit the ground. For his exploding flower photographs the artist first soaked them in liquid nitrogen to ensure the petals were brittle as eggshells and then blasted them from behind with an air gun resulting in dazzling bursts of colour.” (Colossal)

Onwards!
