Iron Stone Milky Way

By Scotty2020  
Iron Stone Milky Way

Taken at kilns above Rosedale in North Yorkshire. The milky Way was even visible to the eye that night.

This one was s little experiment I did using some wire wool.

The technique consists of fine grade wire wool, One egg beater tied to a length of string and some parafin wax.. And gloves of course. Dip the wire wool in the parafin wax, place it inside the egg beater then light it and start spinning the wool you get this effect.

The area around Chimney Bank was the first part of Rosedale to experience the explosion of modern ironstone mining. Work began in 1856 and the initial mining was easy pickings as the ironstone stood out from the hillside as a cliff outcrop. Local legend says that during thunderstorms lightning would often strike the cliff and people talked of the devil or treasure buried in the hill.
