Fun With Dry Ice

Dry Ice
Originally uploaded by Jason Means

I noticed an insulated package sitting on my back porch the other day after I got home from work. Vaguely, I remembered that my wife Andrea had ordered some frozen mice to feed our pet corn snake. As I was getting ready to pitch it out in the trash, I noticed that there were several blocks of dry ice that were still in the box, and hadn't yet melted. Naturally, one thing led to another, and I decided to have a little fun and try to get some high speed frozen (no pun intended) images of the dry ice reacting with water. This isn't exactly the image that I had in mind when I started this madness, but it's still a pretty cool shot regardless.
