Fire, flames, candles, lamps, refineries, steam engines, and anything else you can think of that combusts. Enjoy!

Unbelievable timing. A few hours before this thread started I was driving to work and took this photo while stopped at traffic lights. There is some controlled burning of bushland being done to hopefully prevent a conflagration in summer. Here's the smoke going up into the air over the northern suburbs of Sydney.

Here's something I do with a good friend of mine - we go out to nature, make a fire, them make dinner in this cast-iron pot that cooks the vegetables, rice and usually chicken for us, all on the open fire.

LeoDaVinci, you just described what we call a "camp oven", and many a delicious outdoor meal I've had from one of those!



My kitchen oven flame is insignificant compared to a camp fire, but the food's still OK!

We call it a "Poyke", probably because the vessel is a Poyke Pot, a Boer invention I believe.

Cleo is adorable!

This one took me awhile, as I had to wait until I went to my sister's to take a photo of their fireplace. Then I nearly forgot about posting it....

Crude oil being disposed of in the Middle East in the mid 1970s. This was at the time a method of disposing of oil which was unfit for normal processing.

I was woken before 7am the other morning by the noise of a car horn blowing constantly. When
I looked out the window, I saw a car on fire on the other side of the road. It was parked right
outside the owners house & there was a real chance of it spreading. I was left with the option,
take a photo or call the fire brigade. I chose option 2. This is what's left of the car, they've
moved it away from the house now as it seems as if it was an act of arson.



(It's the one on the right.)
