The Tuesday Inspiration: Flaming weather!

by Helen Hooker June. 28, 2011 6305 views

We??ve had lots of today??s theme over the last few days but, typically, today the weather has broken and we??re now in the middle of a thunderstorm. The bolts of lightning will, no doubt, have plenty of the theme within them but the chances of capturing one of them on camera in broad daylight are slim so I decided to find an alternative subject to shoot. While a candle doesn??t throw out a lot of this element you would certainly feel today??s theme if you were to stick your finger into the flame!

Thanks to Dan (Imdanchan [photoblog.com]) for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??puppets??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.

Actually the yellow part of the flame doesn't hurt , haven't you ever tried that as a child. It was shown as a magic trick to me among many silly tricks as a child.

The cropping you chose is perfect to compose this shot, Helen. Excellent color in the flame.
