Ring of Fire and Stars
Lens: Samyang 12mm Fisheye Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Finland ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: MJKoski, 03-08-2017, 02:44 PM

What happens when Celestial Force hits The Immovable Object? Ring of Fire obviously!



Fisheye lens used to create massive spiral composition. I burned about 300 grams of steel wool *at once* to create the massive fire spiral on the edge of those cliffs. My jacked caught fire but just a little bit to notice it in time.

Thank you everyone for watching and commenting. Appreciated! This was a bit of a physical exercise..

1) Set up camera on the frozen lake bed
2) Ascending to top of that cliff, few kilometers round trip (this is the favorite wall for many Finnish (ice) climbers btw)
3) Do some spins to be sure some will be caught on camera taking 30 second exposures on its own
4) Return back to camera and wait for star trails stack to finish up

This is 150 frame star trail stack including one of the spins with burning steel wool batch.

Ha, this looks like the photographic equivalent of doing a burnout with a real powerful car! But with a lot more creativity involved.

Spectacular! The sparks cascading down the cliff are just awesome, as is everything that went into making this shot!

Quite a stunning combination!

Blast from the past Thanks. BTW, I have ruined coatings of one lens with burning steel wool - Pentax 18-55 kit lens with which I tried some weird compositions. Also burned one jacket and a wool hat in accident. I planned this picture differently but it would have been a bit risky angle right under the spinning spot.
