Chestnuts on the fire

Pentax K10D + Zeiss Planar 50/1.4

My father-in-law still roasts chestnuts on the fireplace, using an old metal kettle. Roasted chestnuts and fireplaces are two of the nicest things of Winter.

For some reason, I had never taken photos of wood burning in a fireplace before. I like how the exposures turned out. The brick wall in the back got just the right amount of light. I also like the way how the fire defines the contours of the kettle in this particular photo.
