The board of the Bergen Arches Preservation Coalition (BPAC) when on a camping trip over the weekend and, of course, we had a campfire. Since I had my camera with me, I took lots of photos of the fire. Why? Because fire is fascinating, so quick and mercurial. It's wonderful to watch.
Fire has also fascinated artists. But I'm not interested in artists in general, but particular artists, the animators working for Walt Disney when the studio produced Fantasia. Fire was featured in two sequences, The Rite of Spring (volcanoes) and Night on Bald Mountain, where the devil Chernobog played with fire on his hand in one sequence.
