This Slow-Motion Fire Tornado Is the Prettiest Damn Thing You'll See All Day

Vortices made of flame are an awesome sight, but as this new video by the SlowMo Guys beautifully illustrates, they take on a completely new complexion when seen in slow motion.

Gav and Dan created the fire tornado, also known as a fire whirl, by positioning a dozen fans around a kerosene fire pit. The slow motion video, shot at 2,500 fps and 1,000 fps, gives the flames an almost textural quality.
