The Devils Grasp, originally uploaded by Ozone71.

The Devils Grasp

Taken for the PIP August Project "How Low Can You Go?" (Low light photography)

Nikon D70, 50mm, f/1.8, 1/30s ISO800

To get the blue flame, I coated my hand in methylated spirits and had Teafor2 ignite it.

For safety, I did this over the sink, and plunged my hand into cold water as soon as the shot was taken. (It took several attempts to get this one and all I lost was the hair on the back of my hand.)
