Fire 'n' Ice the Sequel

By JCowlan
In this image I have icreased my shutter speed to 15sec's. It was during this time that we decided to add more methylated spirit. Because of this there was slight movement within the picture, but the result was this pretty blue flame.
Altough these pictures were taken in college they were taken in a strictly controlled environment. As I mentioned in the previous write up we used a peice of glass that was 3/4 plate so it was less likely to crack under the extreme heat. We also had the correct fire extinguishers ( Powder) at hand as a precaution in case anything should go wrong.

Aperture f8 shutter speed 15 sec's
