Sparks in the rain


Preparing coals for the braai (bbq). And it is still raining, with a strongish wind from the right. Not the best of pictures, but I thought it is worth a posting.


May there be good sparks for you this weekend.

WOW... I love the panorama look here, great DOF and I can tell where the wind comes from wink
Amazing fire-trails. I hope the braai was good and that the rain stopped.
Louis: Braai was good and the rain stopped before the steaks were ready. Thank you Astrid.
it's a spectacular photo Louis and well worth posting... those coals will get very hot with that wind blowing across the top of the braai....petersmile

have a great weekend!
Louis: Except for the sparks, you can also see the little drum is red hot, as the wind fans the coals in making. Thank you peter.
That's pretty cool! I'm glad you posted this - an unusual sight! Have a great weekend, Louis!
Louis: I thought it was hot and now you think it is cool smile I will, thank you Elizabeth.

Love the composition Louis, something quite different
Louis: Bet you didn't know I can cook a mean steak to order smile
Who needs a weathervane when you have good sparks, Louis, right?! grin
Louis: Yes, weathervanes are so yesterday, Ginnie grin
Where are the "boorevoors" Louis?
Great capture!
Enjoy the weekend.
Louis: The boerewors is out of sight, but nearby, Richard. Thanks you, I will.

Love it, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Ray
I hope you have your extinguisher handy...
Louis: No need, it was safe. Even so, there was an extinguisher in the thatch roofed house we stayed in smile
Nothing keeps a man from his braai Louis. Have a great weekend
Louis: I can detect that you will have no pains fitting in, over here, Bill. Thanks.

I see you didn't let a little precipitation dampen the mood. Have a good week end Louis.
Louis: Precipitation can't dampen a good fire, blackdog. Especially when you look at it through the bottom of a whiskey tumbler.
Hope it went well despite the conditions. Well captured Louis and have a good weekend
Louis: It was a great evening, thanks cornishmaid.
Very effective photo. It almost seems like it was taken from a moving vehicle. Stay dry.
Louis: I can see the vehicle analogy. Will stay dry on the outside, thanks Mary.
That is amazing Louis, did you boil a kettle on it or roast something?
Not the best weather for a bbq, then?
A nice shot, Louis, looks good.
A hot or cool shot... whichever you like... I like it.
what is not to like about this shot, Louis? i think it is very memorable of your trip.
