Another day another fire... by thewatersphotos

Another day another fire...

I got another chance to photograph a controlled burn. They burned more than 75 acres in a stand of pine trees. It was a very smoky burn! This is a photo of the smoke in the trees looking down a "fire lane". If you look closely on the lane that is my nephew walking toward me.
Wow! Pine trees burn with a lot of smoke. You captured this scene in a beautiful way.

This is gorgeous Gary. Love the smoke and the crisp details.
February 27th, 2021  
The smoke really does something special to your shot.
February 27th, 2021  
An amazing shot Gary. Love everything about this, including your nephew in the photo.

February 27th, 2021

So pleased to hear it was a controlled burn. Impressive shot, fav

75 acres in a day? Lovely photo which would stand alone, but expands with your commentary. The raking light down the fire lane gives it the lift which makes it special.

Nice composition with the line of trees on each side of the road and the lone person in the distance
February 27th, 2021  
Stunning shot.
February 27th, 2021  
Absolutely wonderful
February 27th, 2021  
Very mystical. Lovely
February 27th, 2021  
Beautiful shot
February 27th, 2021  
Why would you have a controlled burn...is it to clear the undergrowth...sounds slightly risky but my word it’s made an awesome shot.
February 27th, 2021  
Super shot Fav
February 27th, 2021  
Wow!!! Incredible!! The light and color is so intriguing. FAV!
February 27th, 2021  
This is beautiful. I love the way the sun in shining in diagonal shafts through the tall trees. The path and person walking at the end of it just add another element of gorgeous. We've had a controlled burn here this week too. Thursday afternoon late it was so smoky that it caught in my throat.
February 27th, 2021  
An amazing shot.

@happypat Thanks so much, Pat! Yes, the burn is "very" controlled and necessary to clear undergrowth. While it was hot and very smoky, I felt very safe with the team in charge!

@randystreat Thank you very much, Kathy! This was 3rd time to go with them and I learned to get up wind to stay out of the smoke. I took more than a dozen shots trying to catch that sun through the smoke and this one finally lined up.
