In this shot, the destructive blow came from a rough stone glancing off the surface of a water filled balloon sitting in a small flower pot to support it. The burst pattern of the water clearly shows how the stone has caused a tear in the balloon skin, giving a much more linear pattern to the the water's exit.

In 'real-life' I work for the NHS, the rest of my time largely being taken up with photography and associated topics. I enjoy trying different things with photography and would rather take a dozen crap shots than miss that one 'million dollar image'.
