Shower Droplets

The bathroom at the house has two shower heads. I discovered if I pointed the lower one straight up into the main one it makes amazing droplets where they intersect. Then I setup my camera on a tripod and with the light out I opened the shutter on bulb and did a 100% manual flash. After about ten tries and discovering I don't need to use hot water (I steamed up the lens) I got the shot.

It is sometimes mentioned that cameras still do not 'see' as well as the human eye, especially in a dynamic range situation. There is one thing that our cameras can do that the human eye cannot, though, and that is to freeze the action! We capture a moment in time with every photo we take, but with a fast shutter speed that moment is extremely small. Often only a long as 1/4000th of a second. As we are capturing motion with our fast shutter speeds, how about capturing some cool action such as drips, spills, breaks or spins? Any type of movement, however, can be suitable for fast shutter speed photography. Think also of birds in flight, people in motion, and ink in water photography.
