Burning Man Festival

Photos per year: 2016, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 1999, 1998.

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­

A Tesla coil is a type of resonant transformer circuit invented by Serbian-American scientist Nikola Tesla around 1891.­ It is generally used to generate very high voltage, low current, high frequency alternating current electricity.­

It's very impressive to see the high-voltage lightnings arcs produced by large Tesla coils.­ Don't try this at home!
