I've always loved campfires. I love watching a fire as it begins and grows and seems like wind the way it ripples as it travels through a bundle of dry wood at night. I was the kid who just sat there and stared into the flames, enjoying the solitude and beauty of a simple blaze where people could crowd around to warm themselves. I loved watching when flickering pieces of embers would rise silently into a starry sky, disappearing against the deep bluish black canvas sprinkled with glowing stars. So after checking out Trish's early morning pictures and asking her how she did it all, I decided to try something similar except on a triple wick red candle I have here at home. I like the resulting images. Looking at them makes me want to pack up all my camping stuff and head for the woods. Also, it reminds me of the last time I sat around a quiet campfire...Africa. Oh, how I miss Africa!
