Taken last December on a beach in East Lothian. This was done using steel wool, a chain and an egg whisk - with sparks of hot metal drawing lovely lines in this long exposure. The light of the evening was just dying but there was enough for a nice blue glow and the reflection on the wet beach (the tide was coming in).

I cheated with this a little bit and took half of the photograph and then swapped it over to make the whole thing symmetrical so very naughty, but I think the picture works better for it!
