253/365 Home fires burning

One of the best things about winter is having a fire burning in the fireplace. I think it gives the whole house a more homey feel, and adds emotional as well as physical warmth.

I love coming in from the cold outside, shedding my coat and boots, then hurrying to the fireplace to stand as close as humanly possible without touching the hot surface. You do have to rotate yourself like a rotisserie chicken, but that intense heat is heavenly.

I also have to say that roasting marshmallows indoors over a fire is tons of fun. I definitely need to make time for that this winter.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/30s, f/2.8 at ISO 1000
