Based on time series of 2D MSDP spectrograms, taken at the Turret Dome in Pic du Midi, we present the temporal evolution of exploding granules in intensity and Doppler velocity through the solar photosphere. We describe the penetration of exploding granules in the solar photosphere during their lifes and the related phenomena like the "Bright Plumes"located in the downflowing plasma just on the edge of the granule. We suggest a possible scenario of the exploding granule evolution in the solar photosphere.
Key words: Sun: chromosphere / Sun: photosphere
