It’s hard to beat sitting around an evening campfire listening to the sounds of the woods as night falls. When you add the sounds and smells of food cooking over the open flames, life is truly good. Mary Jane makes this amazing meal; layering potatoes, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, onions and sausage, dotted with butter and drizzled with olive oil, all wrapped in a foil oven. Then it’s 30 minutes in the coals, plated on warm camp ware and served with a nice red wine or cold beer. People from other campsites follow the smells and ask us what we’re eating.

I shot the image on the left with a Lensbaby Composer. These are really fun; rent one and try it out. You can get a similar effect in Photoshop with one of their blur filters (that’s what I did for the campsite image below).
