Nuclear explosion photographed less than one millisecond after detonation. From the Tumbler-Snapper test series in Nevada, showing fireball and "rope trick" effects. The fireball is about 20 meters in diameter in this shot.
I really like this photo taken by Harold Edgerton because of the way it captures the water in motion by using high speed photography. It is really unique becasue of the way it makes the water have a sort of "texture" to it.
