This fun shot shows another part of our night-photography fun on Cannon Beach last Saturday. The orange “light blossom” in the picture is formed by someone (in this case, the intrepid Justin Balog) swinging an egg beater on a cable around his head with a block of burning steel wool held within the beater’s wire cage. As it spins, the sparks fly off and generate these amazing trails in a long exposure photograph.
I would love to try this again but it would be challenging to find somewhere safe to do it in Texas, I suspect. given how dry things are just now. I suspect this would have to be a winter activity in dry states.
