Spiral vs Spiral

The natural vs the unatural
The old steelwool is getting pretty cliche nowadays, however its still fun to bring it out to jazz up a landscape. It was only a afterthought to bring along the gear and pack a ciggy lighter, which by the way really should have gotten lost, that darn thing with the safety lock means you could not burn down a gas station, i think i wore off all my skin on my thumb just trying to get a freakin' spark.

Well there was no chance of burning nuttin' down out there, with the recent rain, like 1 hour before hand and teh well.. serious lack of fuel the only thing burning was my thumb.
Although, if +Rodney Campbell had his way i reckon he woulda burnt the tree down 😉
Anyway, enough whingeing, here ya have it, the spiraling galaxy vs the spiraling of three nutters out on a freezing winters night in the middle of some sandy sand dunes.

Single frame – +Gerard Blacklock on da wool, +Rodney Campbell on the colours and +Suren J on the white fill.
Exif/setup data:
D7000 coupled with a sand filled Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 @11mm Aperture: f/6.7 and Shutter Speed: 376.8s
out front – nada, yep nothing
to the left and right was Suren and in the tree was Rod.

btw +Rodney Campbell this would have been a perfect place for star trails – the centre of rootation is in the perfect spot in this frame..

oh well, have to go back now 🙂

  1. Sounds like a plan mate – a nice galactic spin above the tree (tho you know it moves around during the year so we'll have to adjust our position a little :))
    The Tokina wasn't full of sand at this stage – it came afterwards at the stupidly windy beach at midnight!!!

  2. You're right +Gerard Blacklock , but this is so much better than the run of the mill random circles shot, it looks good with the tree as the subject and the steel wool adding to the composition.
    (shit, I sound like I know what I'm talking about, I'm scared…. )

  3. I wanted to share with you what I saw in your picture,

    If you look at it just right
    You will feel yourself
    Come alive
    Like life
    At that moment
    We collide
    One moment in time
    Is one moment and all
    There is no distance
    Alive colliding in your soul
    With life with the universe with God
    Be one with the moment and all

    If it's alright with you I'd like to do a post with those words and your picture of this but didn't want to without permission. Your photography is truly inspiring to me. Thanks for reading. Nicholas Alan Baar
