We had to burn all the trees that had fallen due to wet snowstorms in our lower pasture.

Wow! that's a beauty Cat. The exposure is perfect (see you used spot), and the colours and shapes are tremendous. Of all the fire shots I've seen, this would be the best, by a street! Can't get over the even exposure and strong colour. Well done Smile Alan

Hi Alan and thank you, so much. I wasn't too sure about this, I thought it to be too in your face sort of look. I am finally using manual exposure and loving it - have a long way to go before I thoroughly understand it! I did like the strong contrast of this, thoughSmileCat

Manual exposure, that's a toughie. Not to do, but to make a habit of. A lot of pictures I take of our residents in the group home have to be done very fast, with little time to even compose. In those situations, I don't see how I could work manual. However, with tripod work, I have occasionally used it, and I have to admit it kinda makes one proud.

As for this picture, I think you can be proud of it. It's nice that you can feel the heat, yet still see some detail in the wood. Now if only I had a hot dog and a stick. Mmmm.....

Oh very, very effective! I would have been worried about the heat on my camera with this one - it looks SO hot! Excellent! Viv

Hell fire indeed! Cat this is as good a fire shot as I've seen almost an abstract and I'm definately warming to it! Any spare logs for my stove??

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. Alan, I finally took the plungeSmile Chris, you are correct about manual exposure. I can't see me using it for wildlife - I would certainly miss the shot. Mortong, I could send you some for that wonderful log stoveSmile
