f/11 | 10 seconds | iso 250 | 17-40mm f/4L USM @ 17mm
Thought I would share another steel wool shot, I am still undecided as to which shot I like better (although, I am kind of leaning towards this one over >>yesterdays<<). I love the sparks hitting the ground and the water, simply cool!
Hope you have a great day and an even better weekend!

I love all your shots in this amazing series, but I think this is my favourite – thanks for being so inspiring!
Glad to see you over here Erika! To be honest, I am still up in the air about which is my fav! 🙂
I would love to take a photo like this. I get inspired every time I see one, but just trying to find a good spot so I don’t accidentally light something on fire. Thanks for sharing.
Hi there, sorry I didn’t get to respond earlier…it’s been a CRAZZZYYYyyy weekend (this is about the first time I’ve been able to sit down and read the comments)!
I totally agree, finding a safe place to do this can be a challenge especially considering just how far the sparks fly! I’ve started the hunt for other locations for me to head and have fun (the location used here is about a 45min drive away from me, would rather have a “local” spot)! 🙂
Understood. The tree-free place I am thinking of for me is about a two hour drive away. Plus, not sure I want to hang out alone in the middle of nowhere after dark. I’ll have to find a photography buddy when I head out – then double up on the types of shots I capture. But this type of photo is definitely on my bucket list. Thanks again for sharing.
I like this one better than the other. I totally want to try this!
Sigh, after all this time I am still undecided! I love the sparks on the water but really dig the “umbrella’ish” look of the other one. 🙂 Just be safe if you try this, the sparks did fly a little further than I had expected!
Yeah, I’m thinking I better not do this anywhere there isn’t water!

If you are familiar with the New Zealand Maori Poi dance you can imagine what they could do with the flaming steel wool.
Hi dad, just looked it up…it’s almost hypnotizing!! I couldn’t imaging those…items being on fire though, I think to many things would go up in flames!! 🙂
