High speed action

Had some fun in the garden this morning with some darts and 11 water filled balloons. Been dying to try this for ages so I hung a wet balloon from the tripod, in front of a navy blue slanket, draped over the washing line.
The kids took it in turns to kill the balloon, leaving me the east task of getting the timing right.

All three of these were taken at 1/8000 shutter speed, f2.8 125 ISO. Much fun was had by all.

Quite pleased I managed to get the dart in all three shots.
