Ripple Ricochet, Isaiah Katz

When a water droplet falls onto a pool of water, it pushes into the pool’s surface, spreading ripples around the point of impact. As these ripples spread outward, a small jet of water bounces upwards from the impact point, but this usually happens too quickly for us to see in real time. This image captures the beautiful crest of this jet just after impact.
