Alphabet Photography Project: F is for Fire

F is for FireFor thousands of years, man has not only used fire to cook food and provide warmth, but also to process metal – to extract it from ore, to refine it, and to work it.
This working forge, which has a large hand-operated bellows unit at one side, is part of a Derbyshire heritage site, where on certain days you can not only see it in action, but also have a go with a hammer on hot metal, yourself! Here, a length of steel bar is being heated to a workable temperature.
This post continues my involvement in the Alphabet Photography Project.
