Weekly photo Challenge: Illumination

Although man has learnt to produce, maintain and control fire for use in everyday life, it still is one of the most destructive and fear inducing natural disasters which we have to contend with.

As we live in the country where the veld becomes very dry in winter, we are often awakened at night by the sound and smell of veld fires. The sight  of a veld fire illuminating the night sky is both beautiful and  scary as illustrated in these photos taken during such an event.
