Star Fragments

Eruption

I've been looking for an excuse to capture some sparks with a macro lens since seeing Skink74's "The sparks begin to fly" series.

So when I needed to cut some metal rebar today, I grabbed Bryan's Nikon D2x, Sigma 105mm f/2.8 macro lens, and a floor stand for a little help.

The sparks are created with a Dremel tool and cut-off wheel tip. I set the Interval Timer in the D2x to take an image every second for several dozen frames and started shooting.
