By firelight

When it comes to fires, it is in the Australian Winter when the fires are most welcome. Summer fires bring dread and foreboding. So Summer is when I dig into the archives to see if there is a fire photo that may fit within Nancy Merrill photographys photo challenge prompt of By Firelight

The fires bring warmth in Winter and also a chance to burn-off some of the fallen debris from the forest that abounds my place. Sometimes I have to reduce the amount of fallen branches and leaves that accumulate around the house and garden.

Here is a bit of By Firelight

A fire blazes well alight

Deep within the embers glow

There is always someone,
Stick in hand,
To poke the embers
Making a sparkling sight
Shooting sparks
Into the dark of night

      1. A Damper is simply sift flour and salt rub in butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs then make a well to add milk and water. Put into a cast iron pot or wrap in foil, toss into the fire. It’s a bread of sorts πŸ™‚

  1. I love staring into a crackling fire. It’s so hypnotic. I haven’t done it for a very long time though. Years in fact. I love these shots, Brian. They are very calming. I need it today! Thanks. x
