Daily Prompt – Hope

Gather hope and enter!

Looking at the WordPress Daily Post this morning, I was a bit amused that the day after using the prompt of ‘Abandoned’, they chose to use ‘Hope’.   Of course, the combination of these two words is referenced most often in the line from the first part of Dante’s Divine Comedy, Inferno, “Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch’intrate“, which are the words written over the gate to Hell.

Pyroplasm 3x

The logical connection between these consecutive Daily Prompts led me immediately to an image that still speaks to me after a number of years: Pyroplasm 3x.  Although, to me, the fires in this image are the fires of creation rather than destruction; one could almost paraphrase Dante’s words and say: “Embrace all hope, ye who pass through here!“, as the end result is new creation!

Hope you enjoy this image!

Technical Details

This was shot completely in-camera using a Canon EOS 1D MkIII and an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens.  Using aperture priority, I got the shutter speed slowed to just about 1.5 seconds for this shot while doing a slow zoom with the lens.
