A water droplet bounces off of the surface of a liquid pool and the impact generates a jet and radiating ripples. The jet is also called a Worthington jet. Jets refer to the ligament of fluid that extends normal to the water surface. This image also captures the beginning of jet “pinch-off,” where the upper portion of the Worthington jet bifurcates from the lower portion of the jet to form another droplet.

This image was shot on an Olympus E-M10 Mark II camera with the following settings: Focal length: 42 mm, Aperture: f/5.6, Shutter Speed: 1/1000, and ISO 500 with 600 lumen flashlight.

    Hi Corey,
    I really liked the photo you took and thought the quality of it was amazing especially considering the timing you probably needed in order to capture this phenomenon. The lighting you had in the image was good as it really highlights the water droplet in the air and how it’s just about to pinch off from the stream. I also think the additional waves you captured along with the black and white filter really adds to the overall effect.
