Midsummer in Skagen
The midsummer bonfire (Sankt Hans-bålet) on Skagen South Beach. Never have I seen so big a bonfire, and the strong wind pressing the flames towards the sea - whauw, it was all very dramatic.
In Denmark, we tie a witch (no, she is just made from hay and cloth!!!) on top of the bonfire and send her off to Blocksberg along with all the evil spirits around us - and this one took off long before her stake was burnt. Now, it looks very crosslike and a bit evil in this picture - but in reality it is a peaceful celebration and very pagan indeed.... no religious intentions whatsoever, but I think it makes a hefty picture.
It was my first experience with Holga and live fire - and Holga did extremely well!
A 400 ISO-film against fire and a darkening sky - and, Voila, instant drama!
