Small Cause, Big Effect

A series of pictures shot at a shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second, showing the life of a tailing loop. A real world tailing loop, not a staged one.
One important idea comes to mind: even a small error during force application may lead to a catastrophic result.

Clic on each picture to see it bigger.

    Very difficult to se the line in the photos

    Very nice and interesting shot Aitor ! So do you agree, if I say that a small error during the force application pulled the tip down and then the tip went back up (concave path somewhere during the tracking), producing that slight wave that deepens as the loop unrolls ?
