After a glorious sunset it was time for some light painting on the frozen lake. Here is a recipe for success: Gather a group of like-minded photographers, find a snow covered field or frozen lake. Set up your camera and lens for a long exposure. Focus on infinity. Next, take one wire whisk attached to a steel cable, insert 0000 steel wool into the whisk and light the steel wool with a 9v battery. Swing the whisk and press the shutter release.
