Wetherby has a firework display most years and, of course, there’s a big bonfire to go with it. I’d never really given it a lot of thought about how they construct the bonfire – I’m sure in the old days it would have been laboriously put together by hand. Nowadays, it seems a tipper truck is all you need – one minute nothing, the next ‘we’re ready’.
What bemused me a little was that before the unloaded the truck somebody had started to build the foundations of a bonfire, yet the workers decided it was in the wrong place? Goodness knows!
To give them the benefit of the doubt, I’ve shifted my position and created a ‘feeder’ fire illusion through juxtaposition. I could have moved a lot further to the right and included the small pile, but I quite liked the goal posts in the background.
One of the advantages of building the fire is such a manner is there is less chance of little furry creatures (hedgehogs) taking up residence for the winter.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the actual display this year. (I posted a bonfire picture a couple of years back https://stephenhip.wordpress.com/2012/11/23/feel-the-heat/)
