Cee’s FFC: Fire

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, is to “show off a few photos of the Chinese element of fire.”

The only photo I have of real fire, is this one which provided a very welcome bit of warmth when we went for dinner one evening in England to ‘The Barn at Alfold’. The Barn was built in 1590, and its wooden beams are all original, dating back to the days of the Spanish Armada. I wonder if the fireplace is the same age. Incredible to think of how many people must have basked in its warmth, including Ernest Hemingway, who frequented this establishment in the 1940β€²s, during the Second World War.


We’re all familiar with the sight of candles on a Birthday cake. Elyse managed to blow them all out at once.


At night, houses can look as though they are on fire, like these we saw in Savannah in December.


A true gold and orange sunset like this one over the Venice Lagoon, really makes the sky look all aflame, and that’s when I think the sun looks really hotter than hot, almost like molten lava.

  1. Love your molten lava sunset AD . Candles on cakes are so magical for little ones especially with a countdown usually 3 2 1 BLOW !

      • And it’s really amazing that you had your camera!! So many times I see things and don’t have my camera with me!! I know lots of people have iPhone cameras but I don’t have such a thing. Maybe I need to get with the modern times!

      • We were waiting outside our hotel for the boat to arrive to take us across the Lagoon for dinner. The camera is always present when we’re on vacation. πŸ˜€

  2. There’s nothing like a real fire Sylvia although I guess you don’t get much call for one, alternating between South Africa and Florida. My stove very nearly made it into my 10 favourite things. πŸ™‚

    • No, we never use heating here or at our home in South Africa. I love to see a nice fire in a grate. I guess your stove is worth it’s weight in gold in the British winters.

  3. Wow 1590! Here in the states it seems that if a restaurant has been around for 20 years or so everyone thinks it’s too old fashioned and no one goes there anymore. πŸ˜•

  4. Good fire pics AD πŸ˜‰
    Personally, I love a good fire, being a fire sign.
    I remember, on my 40th b day in Iraq, we had a huge bonfire in the pit, and after everybody left, I sat staring into the flames – there’s something quite magical about fire.
