Crickets and Candles......

Noah and I sat outside last night.....and took a candle out with us. It was incredibly black outside in our backyard and what sounded like a million crickets and bugs were chirping and clicking and singing. While out there I grabbed my camera and decided to try taking some MACRO shots of the candle I had burning. It was a pillar candle in a glass hurricane. I did not use any flash.....and these shots were all taken directly THROUGH THE GLASS of the glass hurricane. I really liked how they turned out......showing the melting shape of the candle all aglow.....and no reflection of the glass and complete blackness around it. Here are a few:

This last one I tilted the camera at a slightly different angle and the effect against the glass made it look more like a small fire with flames.....

I like these pictures too Melinda. Very nice. I am still looking for that camera. I saw one I want but still a bit too high.
