Fire, like water, is difficult to photograph in close-up. It moves and is never in the same place twice. That makes focusing rather difficult and that’s something I need to work on.

I had some fun taking shots of the fire at our campsite though – and particularly enjoyed the times the flames separated from the log and I caught them in mid-air.Flames dancing in the night Flames dancing in the night
