    This backhoe hit an underground powerline and the charge caused it to start fire. Fire fighters couldnt put any water on it until utillities could shut the power off. No one was hurt.

    Oh Deere ... that one's gone.
    Good to hear that no one was hurt!
    The flames in the third photo look great (same as in 1)! Curling and licking and producing that huge amount of black smoke. Cool (or not, actually HOT). Photo 3 is my favourite. Nothing distracting in that one, and such beautiful capture of the fire (true fact is that I have always been quite a bit afraid of fires, but I see that it also has some inherent beauty).

    Is it just me, or does anybody else see the planters peanut dude in #3?
    Nice shots though...

    yea, photo 3 is my favorite also - nothing too distracting. Simple and to the point. The composition is excellent, the smoke really dramatizes that photo.

    I really like #2, the people blurred in the foreground and the far right alignment of the focus makes me feel like you were sneaking around to get a good look. Great shots!
