I had this image in mind for today, but it was only at about 9pm that I decided to try and stage the shot. I took quite a lot of photographs - never knew how difficult the combination of focus, candle, flame and smoke is.
What an emotional day it has been; the bell was tolled 99 times in our Parish Church just before the minutes silence, and then we watched Prince Philip's funeral - what an amazing and emotional event. I pray that the Lord will look after Her Majesty.
Extra: taken whilst the bell was tolling
