One Last Splash

And that, as they say, is that.

Thank you so much to everyone who has viewed, commented on or favourited any of my shots in 2012. You've all been appreciated very much in what has been a tough year for me.

Wishing you all a happy 2013!

I really don't know if I'll be continuing. I don't think I can do another 365, but maybe back to do a weekly, rather than a daily, thing - and I do want to see how you all get on with your projects. :)
Have a good 2013. :)

January 2nd, 2013  
HH, congratulations on a spectacular photo to finish your project! Someone said above that you were fearless with your camera, and that is exactly right! Where I have shied away from water shots after dis-ars-ters dahling, you persevere and triumph! I have appreciated your kindness and support to me during my 10 months on here, your generosity of spirit is truly uplifting and heartwarming. Hope to see you around somewhere in cyber space, but don't feel pressured to keep up the commitment of daily posting..... Anything wd be great! I've now got two months to go and in going to go in there again with water, glycerine, oil and whatever it takes to get some decent water shots..... Your legacy!

May 2nd, 2013  
This is so cool :D May I ask how you did this?
May 26th, 2013  
@tracywilliams Hi Tracy - it's several drops colliding - and the collision is captured by firing flashes at just the right moment. The set up is all controlled via an arduino laser-trigger rig which my OH built.
You can buy commercial devices like a StopShot which do a similar thing - or Dan Borg wrote a pretty good blog about how he built his, which is very similar to ours - http://dansphotographyblog.wordpress.com/category/camera-controller/intro/
