64 Pieces of Proof That the World Is Ending: It's Raining Fire

What happens when you spin steel wool in the air? You can accidentally start a forest fire. Oh, and the photos turn out amazingly!

I love this.

Bokeh photography: Manually focus everything so the lights in the background are out of focus, and the subject (if there is one) is in focus. Also keep a small depth-of-field with a small aperture so the background is easily blurred (motion blur)

The amateur photographer says he mostly shoots at night in his favourite locations which include his back yard, abandoned buildings and the local water treatment plant. All the pictures are long exposures ranging from several seconds to 3 or 4 minutes.  Picture: Wes Whaley / Barcroft Media
