Abstract art in low light. This is a photograph of the flame in the fire place, taken with a shutter speed of 1/80th of a second, much too fast according to the light meter but necessary to freeze the flame and avoid flaring.
With the fall upon us and night-time temperatures dipping below zero, our fire-place is starting to come into play on quiet evenings with friends. We're fairly new to the idea of fire-places but very much enjoying the experience. Not to mention the photographic opportunities it offers.
