Burning Man

    Newer Older

    Star trails and fire? Wow. What will they think of next?

    This is how the lonely drown. 3AM wake up call. Drive an hour to the coast. Climb down a cliff in total darkness trying not to wake the Sea Lions. Set up, muck about, then panic when you realize that the sea is a lot closer than it was 30 mins ago. Race back up the beach and start over. Get bored. Set fire to some things.

    This is a stack of 150ish 30sec pictures. The gaps in the trails are because I deleted a few pictures where I was burning stuff.

      This is awesome. I really like the combination, and even the gaps in the star trails add to it, I think. Makes it more interesting. Great work.

      Hi Mozzer!
      What a cool picture! Very nice! I was wondering how you get those long strikes. What have you used? I used sparklers, but the result is this:


      Can you give me the gold tip? :)
      Kind Regards, Paul
