Bonfire at the midsummer festivities in Kivinokka, Helsinki. Locals said the crowd was bigger than ever before, which must have been because of the Dallapé orchestra, who played there after a 90 year break. Yes, ninety!

There was a second bonfire at the other side of me, so yes, it really got quite hot at one point!

A lovely celebration of the Summer solstice ..( other than at Stonehenge !)
Great the way the flames frame the oh-so-cool fair lady :)

Thank thee, Leonora. The fair lady was even cooler in one shot with a cicarette, which would have juxtaposed nicely with the flame, too, but having just read about how Edward Bernays taught women to smoke I moralized it off.

I have rarely seen the fire was detained as dynamic.

Thank you, Borfel. I made tests with the bonfire, and it seems the trick is not to overexpose it. That means that night was not quite as dark as the background would suggest.

Thank you, Stefan. At least the band loved the crowd. :-)

It was not the warmest of midsummers, and the proximity of the sea made it even less so, so the flames made lots of heat shimmer in the cold air. The shimmer moved rapidly with the flames, so I just had to shoot enough frames to find a proper one.

Gracias, Paz. In some parts of western Finland they still burn Easter fires instead. The purpose of the both was originally the same, to drive off witches and demons.
