Martin Kimbell is only 25-years-old but he already manages beautifully the art of light painting. He captures images of sweeping ribbons of white light while wandering around quiet countryside locations across the UK. Leicestershire and Dartmoor are some of his favorite locations, which he explores at night for maximum impact.

Kimbell’s creations were inspired by the work of Arizona-based photographer Stu Jenks, who plays with light and even fire to create similar tornado-like images. But this young photographer’s technique is actually unique and surprisingly low-tech. To make his stunning light swirls he lines hoops with tiny LEDs and then hurls them into the air. He then composes his images with extra long exposures. Truly remarkable!
