Coppel says he "used burning steel wool combined with a moon-filled night to create this amazing effect over a long exposure." And I still don't understand how he achieved this astounding image.

Ah! Thanks for the explanation, Dris.

Great shot and a great idea. Yeah, steel wool burns pretty easily - touch some across the terminals of a car battery and watch the sparks fly - Kids, do NOT try this at home until Daddy has made the homeowner's insurance payment! So Sparky here gets the wool lit and by spinning the bejeezus out of it, he gets a lot of O2 into the process and the fireworks begin - most cool. The neighbors, the fire department and commercial jet pilots must LOVE him!! Fun stuff!!!
