Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Wednesday’s Photos

Flaming Beauty of a Campfire

The sun has set behind the mountains across the lake. Jupiter is the first object in the darkening southern sky. A magical stillness like a silky blanket is spreading over the Arrow Lake valley. This is the moment when my wife and I like to gather around the campfire near the beach and marvel at the sight of the flames shooting skyward with their fiery tongues. Later, when the fire has consumed most of the twigs and branches, we marvel at the multicoloured spectacle of the flickering dance performed by the burning logs.The photos can only give a glimpse  of the flaming beauty, which words can hardly describe. Enjoy.

    Und schon werde ich erinnert, wie ein Künstler nachts in Sardinien Feuerräder produzierte. Er tat das weit weg von den Restaurants und erhöht, vermutlich auf einer Terasse.

    Peter, your first photo of the fire 🔥 drew me into the rest of the story and photos. Enjoyed them. There is so much beauty in nature.

    Traumhafte Bilder, ich kann mir den Sternenhimmel – den ihr beide beobachten durftet – so richtig gut vorstellen. Einfach phantastisch. Und ein Camper ist auch in der Nähe 😉 Liebe Grüße Wolfgang

    Wow. These are absolutely magical. Fire is always fascinating. And I also was taken back to your meeting of Biene on a camping trip. 🙂

    Fantastic. I like good “fire pictures”, because it is always something unpredictable to photograph.
