Fire Pot


We have been getting a lot of snow this last week and then all day today we got heavy rain.  We have been very cold almost to the bone because of all of this.  I saw this and felt warmer because of it so I had to update my blog with it today.  Once a year there is a huge summer festival in Nagano near the train station and down from Zenkoji.  What you see is a large container that holds a sacred fire that makes the barrier of the festival.

I love the playing with the light from the orange red hot fire.  You can't see the container at all because of that light so it turns black.  It is a summer festival so it is very hot but around this fire feels warm and comfortable not hot and stuffy.  The waves in the fire also adds movement to the picture that if it didn't have it would been boring.

Thank you very much for reading.
