Perhaps borderline but these torchlight procession effigies are lit with flames from candles... At the end they are all thrown onto a large bonfire.

ah thanks for the info - I could have sworn those were books :)
this kind of images can tell many stories - anyway you would like to interpret it - works really well.

There are some very good, great images.  Mine are a bit too literal/realistic .  I really appreciate photographs from everyone and the imagery shown. There are some very interesting, imaginative takes on Fire and Flames.

 A big help in expanding my 'vision'.    When I look back at old images I seem to enjoy some of the ones taken with an SB, playing with different types and settings.

Shame that bonfires and campfires on the beach were banned 15 years ago.  I would love to shoot a Full Moon party , around a fire, on the beach.  Not saying they do not happen but most are Tourists with not much to lose by running foul of the police  ;D .

Keep'em coming , please :)  and have fun  ;D.
