    Allot of time involved in that above picture and allot of 'dud' pictures.

    the above setup was 80Kv Every safety precaution was taken but still a little nerve racking shooting High voltage in the dark.

    I have a few more shots here,

    I was not sure where to place this thread, so if it needs moved I understand.

    Great computer wall-paper images.
    Video with sound would have been cool. The sound from a continuous arc is a wonderful thing.

    Happy to share :) High voltage is a beautiful thing.

    And I agree Scary is an understatement, I even grounded my camera lens encase of an inadvertent strike.
