I have shot Red Bull containers several times.

I find them empty by the side of the road when I am out on bike rides, take them home and shoot them.

This time I tried to counterfeit the strange yellow fluid inside by using food coloring and water. I also set my flash controller for a long delay so that I could catch the steel bearing projectile far to the right.

It was traveling at about 700 feet per second.

I was lucky and the framing was fine.

In this picture I like the spray patterns and the way that the can is collapsing.

Lots of symmetry.
