Bought a book called "Stopping Time" last year, was truly stunned on how dedicated the photographers and scientists were to achieve that perfect timing.  I was equally fascinated to see the amount of energy released in that split second. Even more captivated by the images captured, something we don't see often with our naked eyes. What's even more impressive was that almost all of the photographs in the book were captured way back in the 60s of the 20th century, a time before I was even born.

I couldn't remember how many I have pressed the shutter to get this shot. What I did remember was that my helper and I were leaping for joy when we finally saw this image on the SD9's LCD panel.
