Caption: MODEL RELEASED. This image is part of a sequence where a man over-inflates a balloon until it bursts. The image was taken with a high-speed flash system. The motion is effectively frozen in time due to the short duration of the flash (1/20,000th of a second). The balloon was filled with a few milliliters of water before it was inflated. When the balloon is popped, the gas quickly expands and cools. This cooling converts the water vapor in the balloon into suspended water droplets which can be seen as a cloud.
