Encouraged by the response to my first attempts at capturing water droplets which I posted yesterday, I felt confident enough to have another go last night.

This time I used some red card behind the glass to give a warmer feel to the water.
Again I used an off camera flash to freeze the action, timing the shutter manually by watching the drops as they fell.

A small selection of what I think were the best, I hope you like them.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Barrie, I tried to clean the sensor before trying this set, less dust bunnies to wander into shot.

Got a bit of cramp from kneeling down trying to get the timing right on the drops!!

Thank you all.

Stewart, I had thought of trying different fluids, a milk shake came to mind, but I know that if I get one of those I will have to be quick shooting it as my Wife will be trying to get it!!.
