At first look, this gathering looked very violent and pagan. It turned out they were council workers on a charcola-making mission. They generously allowed me to take a few shots.

A Fire In The Forest is the eighth track on David Sylvian’s 2003 album, Blemish. You can read more about it here. It was his first great album of the new millenium, and Manafon was just around the next bend. Both strongly evocative of “the woods”.
