Digitally Mastered Smoke Elemental
"Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot ... " (see Wikipedia on Guy Fawkes)
In this country (UK) we celebrate Bonfire or Guy Fawkes night more than Halloween. Now this mostly involves fireworks. Some people are still sufficiently macabre that they make an effigy of Guy Fawkes to burn on a fire. Although technically the fifth of November there have been fireworks going off in the dark with even greater frequency than usual for the last two weeks - this weekend will be the peak. So despite living in a "smoke-less zone" (to avoid smog) for the next few days my skies will be full of smoke.
