Spray of Sparks!

Spray of Sparks
Are you thinking traditional fireworks?? I would never have guessed how this was done if I hadn't gone to a very fun photo club outing last night. It involves a piece of cord, a wire whisk and a pad of steel wool. Tied to one end is the whisk with the steel wool stuffed inside, and on the other end is a person who lights the steel wool and then swings the cord in circles. This is my favorite of some very cool designs that I captured.   (Oh, and don't worry, he was standing on a small pier and the sparks were hitting water.)
