Wind by the Fireside

There is nothing quite like barbecuing some good food under a clear evening sky in the company of friends. The chilly wind only makes the fire all the warmer.

As they say, flames are never the same, twice. You can stare at them for ages, yet there will be no identical repetitions.

At times, in the dying amber, creatures and things emerged from the flame. From delicate flowers to savage beasts, what can been seen is limited only by our imaginations, a faculty that was often less corroded relatively in many's early days.

But what I found to be the most fascinating imagery of all is something you can only be seen if you dance along with the efreeti.

Here are some of my favorite shots.

If the world is going to hell in a handbasket, the shadows and the flames sure look a lot prettier to me than the fluffy clouds and eternal light. ;)
