***Mini Challenge #689 - Fire****

Good morning – I suspect for many, the last few days have involved good food and company – hoping all are well rested.

The theme for MC 689 is Fire. The intent is to present an image of fire, either directly or in a manner where fire or flame may not be visible, but where the connection between the image and fire is obvious. From a small candle to a conflagration, man-made to acts of nature, all forms are fair game. As always, providing some perspective or back story is appreciated.

The challenge starts now and will end on Sunday December 4th, at noon Central Standard Time. I will try to reply to all submissions in a timely fashion. I am with family and then traveling back home tomorrow so I’ll be hit or miss for a couple days, but please go ahead and “fire away” (sorry).

There is a maximum of 3 entries; and you can submit as many exhibits as you like. By submitting images to this challenge, you agree to subject them to comments and constructive criticism. Commentary from your esteemed, highly qualified, and unbiased panel of judges will, at best, indicate the judges are not sleeping.

The last several MC’s seem to be heavy on exhibits vs entries. I welcome images however they may arrive, but please consider submitting images as entries. I appreciate there may be those who are reluctant to host a MC for a variety of reasons. I’ll only say that the challenge benefits from having a variety of people host, each bringing their own ideas and perspectives.

Photos must have been taken by you and may have been taken on any device and processed in any way.

Please state in the header whether the image is an entry or exhibit. Non-labeled examples will be assumed to be exhibits.

Post all images using the "Reply to Thread" button below this post.

Honorable Mentions will be selected from both exhibits and entries. First, Second and Third places will be selected only from entries. The first-place winner has the "privilege" of creating and hosting the next challenge and has 3 days to begin it. The winner can respond to the host with a forum post or PM. If the winner does not respond in 3 days, or declines to host, the second-place winner becomes the next host. If the second-place winner declines to host, the third-place winner becomes the next host.

Have fun,
