Burning Embers

Burning Embers

The burning embers of a bonfire glow brightly in the chill Arizona night.

Taken in January 2008 when Automattic visited Arizona. Here’s another shot of that fire!

Fire!

Fire burns brightly in a bonfire lit at the ranch in Arizona. I ruined my coat by standing downwind of the fire. The smell of smoke was impossible to get out! Still, got a few nice shots!

Bonfire Night

It was Bonfire Night in Cork yesterday. It’s celebrated on St. John’s Eve and there have been bonfires lit in Cork for as long as I remember. Not all parts of the country celebrate the night, and I heard on the radio 2 days ago that there may be a by-law passed in Cork banning the lighting of bonfires that night because of the danger to people, property and the fire services.
Unfortunately each year the fire services are attacked with rocks and other weapons when they go to certain areas of the city.
