Spinning wire wool inside the very impressive Mermaids Cave underneath the immense Dunluce Castle in County Antrim. This cavern is over 60 ft high and 300 ft long and timing is everything as you need a sufficient amount of low level ambient light through the cave mouth and also the incoming tides need to be timed well. I had visited this cave the night before to photograph it in the other direction as a long exposure as the tide comes in.

What an intriguing and innovative shot! Not a sparkler then? Great control over a really tricky subject. Hope you got out before the tide came in.

Fascinating, Chris... *googling "spinning wire wool"* INCREDIBLE! I had no idea... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBKD9Ln-Fn4
Wow... That creates and you have captured (in challenging circumstances!) a magical image. I discern the image of the man -- was he sufficiently still for 26 seconds? No spot-fill flash is apparent...
