Unbelievably Beautiful Bullet Flight Photos

A Finnish shooter named Herra Kuulapaa has taken what I think are the most beautiful high speed gun photos I have ever seen. He took the photos to understand what happens when the bullet leaves the gun. The detail on the photos is astounding. If you do nothing else today, just take the time to read his webpage, then re-read it.



Thanks to Mike for the tip.

    Damn, that guy is a wizard!

    You can order pictures, or even canvas from him. Great pics!

    I’m pretty sure that is actually just a nickname because the literal translation for Herra Kuulapää would be Mister Ballpoint. Kuulapää is also one of the head types for tripods and he is a photographer so he probably got the nickname from that.

    And as Finn said you can request hi-res version of a photo you like from him so you can have it printed and put on your wall.
