Taken against a black sheet background.
Had to tilt the steel bar up slightly to get the sparks to fly upwards at that angle.
Also used a handheld speedlite at 1/32 power to light up the grinder disk and bar.
Also interesting that even though the disk is spinning at 6500r/min, the flash at 1/32 power managed to freeze the disk's motion.

I wish there was some background to add some context to the shot.
