I Love Summer: High speed photographs capture water slide riders

Photographer Krista Long has captured these high speed images of people shooting out the end of a water slide for her series I Love Summer. Each photograph shows a subject in mid-air, frozen in that exhilarating moment before they splash into the water below.

While some appear graceful and well practiced, others make for some unique and sometimes funny positions, as they anticipate the end to their fun slide. Long explained: β€œI wanted every little water droplet to stand out and really capture, emphasise and isolate the facial expressions and the body positions. I think it’s so fun just to watch everybody come out of this thing. It is just pure entertainment for me.”
