Bonfire Magic

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Mark Barton

The tangled spore capsules of Bonfire Moss form a chaotic but beautiful pattern. Against the dark background, the spore capsules seem to glow. Bonfire Moss are often found on sites of fires, hence the name. I used a hypermacro lens set to 5x lifesize for this image. Only natural light was used.

Location: Ainsdale, Merseyside, UK
