flash ionization

By david j. green  
I often wondered how a studio light flash tube looks when it is fired.

As it is so bright I had to turn flash power to minimum, stop down to f45 and use a ND filter.

You can see the violet glow around one of the electrodes due to the polarity (cannot rememember if it is the cathode or anode). The orange glowing filament is the 250W halogen modelling lamp to give continous light.
