I know it is not my best work but the objective was to show a visually interesting before, during, and after sequence of a good prescribed burn. I was really having trouble getting what I would consider good quality shots of this situation. What would you guys recommend? Thanks.

Sorry I should have left a comment on the photos. I like them, good job capturing the before and after. I always was fascinated by fire but not the distruction is leaves in its path though. Fire just seems to take on its own life form.

Nice documentary shots. I think I might have closed in on the area around the large tree in the middle of your second shot, providing I didn't have to get too close to the fire (telephotos were invented for a reason :mrgreen: )

Thanks guys. I chose a wide angle (11-16mm tokina) because I thought it would be easier to show what the fire was really like. I was also carrying a drip torch and had a shovel strapped to my back so I could not bring my other lenses unfortunately. Do you think something like a 50mm or 100mm would have been better for this? I will be getting another chance this spring so I might give that a shot.

As a side note, this was one of 3 prescribed burns. the last one I was not able to get any photos of because the line I was working was too hot and required my constant attention with 35' flames and a growing wind.
