Ice in Iceland
Even a decapitated head can breathe fire… but not for long! This beautifully scalloped ice Popsicle was breathing fire until the end.
Prumpt onto my sensor with magic cloth long exposure. Use the Magic Cloth Technique.

Hints for Magic Cloth photography
What you need:
Neutral Density Filter: (Not nightime, only day!)
I prefer round filters for damp weather conditions.
I have to get down to the ground for an interesting perspective so extra flexibility are definitely great features to have on your tripod. Set up your tripod so it is sturdy. Magic Cloth movemnts can cause vibrations. A sturdy tripod is important for fine art long exposure photography.
Try to avoid extending the center column unless it is absolutely important. The center column is the weak spot of the tripod.
Sometimes a tripod has a hook between the legs, suspend something from it to provide better strength. Often Travel photographers carry a bag to put stones in to give a better strength which will hold the tripod still – great for long exposure work.
Long Exposure tips…
Magic Cloth Method:
Use a dark filter or low light for a to acheive a long exposure, then over expose the picture by two to three stops.
There is an advantage to a long Shutter speed. 2-5 sec requires a fast, but smooth movement to cover the sky within a reflex time. 5-10 sec lets you have a extra exposure of the foreground.
Magic Cloth Action
Normally, I use very fast downward motion and slow, careful upward motions.
Vary the Action to allow many short exposures of the sky, instead of a single medium exposure (30 seconds and over exposures only).
Spot meter for the highlights and then x 4 to get the total exposure time.
