Ring Of Fire



One day last week we were doing some yard work, raking leaves in piles for Nick to burn when Christian (my oldest boy) noticed this pile burning in a perfect circle, a "Ring of Fire". Christian came in to get the camera and shot this photo :)

  2. Your son is very observant. I am surprised that you are allowed to burn leaves which has been banned in our state for years. I miss the smell and the sound of cracklimg leaves.

  4. Thank you for your comment left on my site today regarding the photo of Michael Landon's house. I enjoyed your photo of the "ring of fire." It does bring back childhood memories of raking leaves and burning them. I hope your children got to jump into the pile of leaves before burning them, as we used to do.

  6. That is amazing! The first thing I thought of was the old Johnny Cash song: "I fell into a burning ring of fire." So now we know there is such a thing, as 'a burning ring of fire' he just didn't make it up after all... Great Picture~~~~

  7. That's an awesome picture. Isn't it cool that you're raising your kids to look at things from a photography perspective?

  15. Cool! And kind of creepy!

    Burning leaves is illegal in Metro Manila. I think it still happens in a lot of places, but my neighborhood is pretty strict about it.
