hi Guys

I could not resist this weeks assignment, so had to participate in this one with a bit of splash fun..

Rather than a simple drop shot, I decided to make it difficult by adding hard water to the mix as in Ice. This made the drop collisions incredibly difficult to predict and get good shapes, as the first drop hits the ice and goes off in the wrong direction, but a little perseverance and I got something close to what I wanted.. not perfect, but seldom are water drops perfect (being different each time) ..

All the best and thanks for looking

Excellent shot ! One of these days I need to get a stop shot as I am only using a burette tube. Getting a double collision much less a triple with my set up is next to impossible

Hey Birdie.. it makes it so much more less frustrating with a solenoid dropper, you get consistent results so more time to be creative with the drops. I use a system from Camera Axe, but there are lots out there..

Thanks for looking and commenting

All the best

That is one "cool" cocktail Howard.
I haven't been able to get such a thin stream. Sure perfect here for your set-up.
Well done.

Thanks Lee

You need to play with the consistency of the drop water, by adding additives , there seems to be lots of various sites with advice, but I use a very small amount of guar gum in the dropper. this gives a much longer spout onto which 2 other drops can collide.. like this one.
