One second too late and you miss the shot. One second too early and all you get is a picture of a pool of water. I love this photo because its so cool to see how something so simple, can look so amazing.

When I was no older than 9, I was at a 4H exhibit to bring more of the youth in the area to 4H. One booth was all about photagraphy. To make a point that photagraphy is more than just pointing a camera at some thing and hitting the button, they set up a bowl of water with a little seringe that let a smal drop fall every few seconds, and a camera on a tripod aimed at the bowl. The goal was to capture that perfact shape of when the drop hits the water. 

I tryed many times, untill I looked back at all of the photos I had taken. In the last three was the shape.

I believe I still have a print out of it.

This is really cool and really pretty! I've always wanted to capture a picture like this but I never can time it just right.
