Photographing flame in my backyard.

Yesterday I made a campfire in our backyard, burning old branches, and took a few pictures of it. I wanted to show a flame texture, making a sharp image of it, so I played with trying to get flame in focus. Since it was daylight I could use fast shutter speed 1/125 (with ISO 100) and f/6.3. There are of course lots of other ways of photographing fire and there are different types of fire - single flame of a candle, big bonfire (especially interesting in a dark) and so on. The longer exposure at night time would show beautiful lines of flying sparks. Flame is very interesting subject for photography and I am going to continue making experiments, photographing it.
