A Feathery Fire

Fiery Feathers (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit." ~ Albert Schweitzer (German medical Missionary, Theologian, Musician and Philosopher. 1952 Nobel Peace Prize, 1875-1965)
This is a small fluff of bright yellow and reddish-purple feathers on top of a pen. A macro photo with simple lighting from a small halogen lamp gives a surprising result; a feathery fire with wisps of glowing flame.
