Dear All,

This is a simple shot of a bonfire.
In this picture I tried to show the energy some wooden blocks dissipate when burnt. It was hard to go close to this place and this "light source" was a strong motive to keep me away for a while.

I also like the textures of the wood blocks against the emerging color tones of the fire.

This is my humble entry to Friday's theme!

Looking forward to your feedback.

Have a nice weekend.

Best regards,

Hallo Nachbar,

Burning fire is looking pleasent while I'm sipping coffee and snow is all around my surroundings. You've beautifully captured the hue of comsuming wood. Unique idea for the theme, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Beautiful but I can feel the heat emiting from the fire which is good for the cold and windy weather we are having in Southern Nevada. Love the colors. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,

I like your idea od using the flames and the burning wood to contribute to the Friday's theme. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the burning wood and of the flames. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.

Hi Paras,
Perfect details in this flame of this bonfire. The tree trunks are clearly visible and there's action in the presentation.
The mostly used light source throughout ages - fire!
A sharp and neat contribution to the theme.
Regards and enjoy your weekend.

Hi Paras.

Fires and flames come high up in the order of light source, without it, we would live very gloomily. I like the diagonal charred wood within the flames adding much interest. Am sure i can feel the heat, tfs
Have a good weekend tfs

Ciao Paras, fascinating composition, splendid light and fantastic warm colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Paras
This is a beautiful light source and heat as well...
Razor sharp...stunning colors..and great détails on the woods..
a beauty...fit the theme very well

On TV in this country we have a channel at Christmas that simply shows a log fire burning. We often have a wood fire when camping. They are relaxing and you shot reflects that same sense of serenity and relaxation. TFS
