I'm on vacation in the Outer Banks, a strip of barrier islands off the North Carolina coast where I spent most every summer for 7 years during my college days. I love the smell of the air here.

This project is long exposure photographs of a beach grill, capturing the twisting trails of individual embers flung from the grill as a single mass of fire flower. I just thought it would look neat, and it did.
