You've seen a shot similar to this in, believe it or not, the'Ice' shootout in January. This one shows the flames better. (1/500s, f/3.2, ISO1600, 70mm equiv.).

Nice capture of the flames. That is one thing I have not really attempted before. I guess I will someday soon.

Is that really a boar or just a log with the general shape of a boar? Great shot of the fire.

I'd put the huge pig's head log on the fire the evening before that as it died down.

These (below) were 9pm Saturday night, within two minutes of each other.The first shot above was at 10:44 Sunday morning after I'drelit the fire, having worked out in my sleep how to capture the flames.

In these two shots, there are in fact small flames beneath the log, as you can see in the right-hand (1/2s, f/3.2, ISO400, hand-held, sorry!)shot, but they're invisibly dim with flash illumination (1/40s, f/8, ISO100).

This illustrates what 1/4s exposure, f/3.2, ISO64 could do to smear the flames, taken within a minute of the first shot at 1/500s, ISO1600in this thread.

I hope this shot can be indulged, please, as the 'second' of today'sposts (at 04:28 British Summer Time). This challenge has been another valuable learning exercise, as it has caused me only now, 4 months late,to analyse the exif data to see what I did in December.

Seeing your variations on the fire Alan makes me wonder if fire is like water. Fast shutter speed gives you one look while a slow shutter speed gives something completely different. I will have to give that a look see and report back.
