Panier of Plenty

Midsummer fires

La fête de la Saint-Jean

As the bonfire dies down, the square at the end of our road livens up – disco lights merge with the wall projections announcing the fête, as tiny sardane dancers in Catalan costume clutch their lanterns and jiggle to the DJ…

Arriving with flaming torches

Arriving with flaming torches

Awaiting the ritual lighting

Awaiting the ritual lighting

Céret, proudly Catalan

Céret, proudly Catalan

Last of the torches igniting

Last of the torches igniting

Which animal?

Which animal?

Mesmerising

Mesmerising

Intense heat
