When it's cold and miserable, you've got to improvise Smile

Decided to go for the fastest shuttrer I could get to freeze the plasma, so this is ISO1600 @ F4 with IS - think I got it down to 1/60th.

Usually see 30 second exposures with 1001 tails coming off the light, thought I'd try and get one powerful blast - so had my left hand on top of the ball and did my best one handed with the camera.

Bit different to the lakes but hope you enjoy it

absolutely no point showing the RAW cause this is exactly the same Smile

Camera:Canon EOS 5D
Lens:Canon 24-105 f4 L IS
Recording media:1600 RAW

Suprisingly striking. Simplicity works here, but there's a bit more detail if you look closely. A soft focus look as well.

Looks like a Cherry !

cheers pete Smile

was 50/50 whether to bother with this one too Smile

the focus is very odd Damian, I don;'t think yo can get it sharp on the actual ball =- god I tried!!! though the actual strands of light can come up super sharp.
