What’s Prettier Than Flowers? Exploding Flowers

Exploding Flowers

By Evan Ackerman

This high speed photograph by Ori Gersht captures a floral still life, which has been frozen in liquid nitrogen, in the process of being blown apart by explosives. I could wax lyrical about all of the things it supposedly represents, but I won’t… It’s just damn cool, if you ask me. You can view a gallery of 15 different images, featuring varying degrees of explody-ness, by clicking here. Fullsize picture after the jump.
