This tall, beautiful flower grows in great profusion near where I live. I believe it is known as fireweed in some parts of the world.

Lovely set of shots Adrian, I certainly think that rosebay willowherb does more justice to the plant.

Thank you Bob. 
I believe it is called "fireweed" because it is one of the first plants to grow where there has been a fire. Apparently his was most evident during the London blitz.
