Fire Dancer

I was watching the firelight play over the logs in the wood stove this evening, when I thought I saw a fiery little creature dancing. I ran to the table, grabbed my camera, jumped back to the hearth and clicked the shutter. To my utter amazement there she was, the Fire Faery.

As you can see from the untouched photo above, I didn't have to enhance her very much!
.
Daddy Update: Great news! Dad has formally been discharged from the wound specialist. The top of his head is completely healed. He has also been fitted for a more comfortable neck collar to support his still-broken neck.
.
However, Dad is still having flashbacks to his time in the prison camp--they are even more vivid than before. Yesterday Dad went to the VA Hospital for some tests to find out why. I would appreciate your continued prayers for the healing of Dad's neck and the cessation of those flashbacks. Mom would appreciate your prayers, too. This is all very hard for her.

She is beautiful! Nice job on capturing her picture. So glad your Dad's head has healed and I will continue to keep your parents in my prayers.

That is sooo cool and reallly hot too. Great shot Sis now that it's winter it is probably more comfortable making fire faeries rather then cloud angels anyway. :o}

I love her, she's beautiful... so graceful. Your head works wonderfully, you see such beautiful creatures in mundane things.
PS: Hope your dad is better, will send a prayer up for him.

As well as your clouds (I always think of them as YOUR clouds. When I look at clouds and see something within, I always think there is Beth's friend); you capture such in fire too.You help me see more.

You are blessed.

Oh to sit by a warm and comforting fire. You do have the best timing and eyes to capture the hearts of clouds and now fires, and all things nature. You're being called by them I think, softly and sweetly called. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. Praise for the healing that has occurred and Prayers for the healing yet needed. May God Bless you and your family with Hope, Healing, Comfort and Grace and may His Love Shine upon you and yours always. Happy Thanksgiving. Love and Light, Nina P
