The elusive third drop, but at the cost of reflection. Third drop seems to influence first drop size and reduce height of column.
Beautiful, lovely composition.
Superb detail and colours.
Great colour and light reflection and also captured the elusive third drop. That third drop is normally a larger second drop than the nozzle can accommodate, so it breaks into two drops. You may have noticed some shots where the drop is more elongated, this is the stage just before it splits into two drops.
The height of the Tendril is dictated by the height of the drop tank, the size of the first, the depth of the catch tank and the time delay of the second drop. The higher the drop tank and larger the first drop, the higher the tendril, assuming there is enough depth in the catch tank to take advantage of the increased latent energy. Get that lot how you want it and then you can gently lessen the delay for the second drop to make a collision when you want it, without reducing the height of the tendril unduly.
Normally, a smaller second drop works best.
Smaller first drop = thinner tendrils.
Lovely image with beautiful colours and detail..........
