Playing With Fire – Again

Yup, I’m playing with fire again.Β πŸ˜…Β Last time was when my uncles were burning old magazines and newspapers. This time, it was a burn barrel with sticks. πŸ™‚ The photo challenge this week from Dutch Goes The Photo is Heat, and here is my entry.Β  πŸ˜€

Zoomed out shot of the fire in the barrel.

Zoomed in shot of the fire. It was hard to photograph fire because it jumped all over the place. It refused to stay still!

But I enjoy a challenge, and after about 100 photos, these were probably the best shots. I like the way the fire looks behind that stick. Whimsical and wispy.

Is it just me, or can you almost make out an angel in there?

And lastly, here are a few experimental shots of the fire that my camera did with the special effects. Sadly, I don’t know what the different effects are called:

Rainbow-like effects.

Reminds me of really old photos. I especially like how this one turned out for some reason.

Ever wondered what fire looks like in black and white? Well, wonder no more!Β πŸ˜‰

I had a lot of fun playing with fire that day. Hope you enjoyed seeing the results of that. πŸ™‚
