    Here are some of the pics I have taken while on the fire department. if any one has any tips on what settings I could save on my camera for taking pictures at night, with moving people and flickering light from fire and get better photos, that would be appreciated. I do not get the advantage of using a tripod or anything like that and most of these were taken on the fly while going from one task to another.

    WHOA :shock:

    Pure action!
    Wow.
    And more WOW! :shock:

    Sorry, I can't give you any pointers as to settings on your camera in situations such as these, but I am sure others will be able to. We have more than one fire fighter on board.

    But I can say that I really like #3.

    And #4 scares me ... that would have given me nightmares to look at as a little girl!

    Editing to say: what?
    More photos showing while I was typing?
    That new one here ... is it in your fifth post (by the way, you may well put more than one photo into ONE post, but in that case it would be wise to number them), of the burning wood, that one's also really good.

    Thanks. A couple of those have been front page photos with our newspaper. i guess pictures are a bit like my other hobby with scale models in that I can be my own worst critic. Here's a one more of a chance shot before a parade.

    Actually it is melting. By the time it all burned off all that was left was the frame and axles, which were fused to the road. The truck contained 8000 gallons of gas which as you can see caused a good bit of fire.

    Here is the aftermath, every one did make it out safely from the vehicles.
