A recent one taken during "the night of bonfires". It's an event happening around this time of the year every year through out the Baltic Sea region in north europe. It supposedly is ment to symbolize the unity amongst the countries & nations of Baltic Sea.

Last time I was up there I got to experience some of the Summer Solstice 'rituals'. It was really interesting. In the short time I've spent in the Baltic nations, they seem like a places with great traditions...I'd never heard of the night of bonfires until now, thanks for sharing the story and the wonderfully composed photo.

Cool shot man, kept the fire from being way blown out while not underexposing the people on the right.

Everything really did come together beautifully - the sky is a neat blue, the fire a bright orange... The Moon and the figures captured perfectly.
