Bonfire Party, Halloween

This year as usual we ran our Halloween celebrations over until november 5th, Guy Fawkes Night in the UK. I took a few shots of the fire (in a brazier for safety and convenience) and the carved pumpkins.

The fire (spitting sparks) and the pumpkins in the background, above which you can see the solar lights on a holly tree - just about see anyway.

We were able to produce colours in the flames by throwing pine cones on the fire which had been soaked in chemicals, e.g ccopper salts to produce blue, potassium salts - purple, cadmium - orange, chromium - green.
