Snake River Fire Dance

Thursday night members of the future ISU Photo Society went out with me to the Snake River near Pingree, Idaho for some astrolandscape photography. The evening was clear and cold (dropped to about 25F), with a great view of the Milky Way. Fortunately, there were a number of meteorites throughout the evening. Several show up in my stacked star trails shot. Other fun happened with there was an unexpected “fire dance”, as I call them. Jake and Dakota had brought along some steel wool and a wire whisk on a lanyard. Once they had it lit and spinning the sparks were really flying! It made a great addition to beauty and solitude of the evening. All total, we had 8 students participate, ranging from beginning to graduated. Enjoy the show!
