Underground Portal Opened by Spinning Steel Wool

Has an actual portal to another world been found? Not quite. Reddit user ABURAKUASU submitted this breathtaking photo he refers to as “Firewire” in which he is spinning steel wool that has been lit in a drainage tunnel in San Dimas. The stunning visuals were created with 00 grade steel wool on a string and captured on a Canon 60D with a Samyang 14mm lens. Believe it or not, there was no lighting equipment at the site or editing effects used in Photoshop. Amazing!
