This amazing image of gunfire caught in time was taken by a process known as Schlieren photography. The image shows a bullet from a .44 caliber magnum pistol caught by a microsecond exposure of the Schlieren system camera. Also visible is the shock wave caused by the supersonic travel of the bullet as well as the muzzle blast.
