Getting requests for a back story...

We had a safety guy here that ended up becoming a fire fighter and I got an invite from him to attend a live fire exercise that his dept and 2 others were conducting. The province had asked them to torch 3 of 4 buildings in a small provincial park about 20min outside the city. Anyway I had a blast shooting the event, at one point it got a little out of hand when the wind kicked up but they all did an AWESOME job at controlling the fire and I now have even more respect for the men and women that do that job seeing them work their butts off that day and still be smiling at the end of it. I have a //www.dpchallenge.com/portfolio.php?USER_ID=67579&collection_id=36220][FIRE! section in my profile that I will reveal when the challenge is over.

Thank you all for your votes and great comments.

Wrong challenge. On the other hand, you probably have a better shot for the Orange challenge. Wer'e in trouble ten, as this is an awsome shot already. Bumping up

Wow - great photo. Please explain the story behind this. Please don't enter something similar for Orange as I'm entering this myself (I hope) and I could never compete with this. The smoke out of the top of the stack is adds so much. You get a 8 from me.

Ok... With that type of chimney, it looks like it was something old and interesting... Make sure you post the story, please!
