Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place 
Second photo taken an hour later. Amazing how the colours change.  

This week we are meant to show a place we go to, to get our groove back.

I don’t really have a specific place it’s more a state of mind or my dreams which I can’t really take a photograph of.

However since being a youngster I have always found looking in to the warm flickering flames of an organised Winter fire (no not a house on fire!), very relaxing.  

It is for me quite mesmerising and always takes me somewhere else. The flames look like dancing figures and often inspires a story in my head. The warmth helps too πŸ™‚

Do you remember The Tales of the Unexpected? Im sure the opening piece has flickering flames with women dancing inside or was that a bond movie? lol

Do you have a happy place?

    Beautiful photos! I love sitting by fires, too! I’d say one of my happy places is usually sitting on a counter, or a deck railing. Something so fun yet calming about sitting in a place not purposed to be sat on – it’s also like a mini challenge!

    I love to look into the fire like you in the winter time and now I love to stay at the beach and look at the sea, very calming.

    We rarely have fires here except bonfires on the beach or at parties. But yes I agree, it’s mesmerizing to watch the flames dancing.

    Before we moved, we had a wood-burning stove that was inserted into our fireplace. I loved watching the flames burn and feeling the warmth and coziness of it. So I completely get it.
