Heart of Flame

This photo is for my sister Clytie--Queen of Hearts! My husband and I were enjoying a quiet evening together, snuggling on the sofa watching the lights of the Christmas tree and the play of the firelight upon the bricks. Suddenly I saw a glowing red heart in the flames. To my husband's astonishment, I leaped to my feet, grabbed my camera, pulled the screen door from the woodstove and started clicking away.

Poor fellow, he's getting used to my odd behavior when it comes to sudden-impulse-camera-shutter-clicking!

Have a wonderful weekend!

After spending a week traveling with me, my daughter is getting used to me doing that too. Fabulous shot Beth!

Delightful. May you never lose the excitment of the hunt for the curious and unexpected. Love the story that goes with the discovery of the flaming heart. Sweet.

I make it two hearts one springing forth from the other...or a fire breathing dragon what ever blows your hair back. Wonderful shot Sissy Bea...happy to see you survived the onslaught of Santa. Love you

Nicely captured Beth. It is awesome how you follow your impulses and feelings so that you can truly live in the Moment. Keep bringing the creativity that you know intimately into the world as you do so well.
