where there’s smoke

I had a GREAT day yesterday.

Brad came back from a run around the lake to tell me to grab my camera because they were doing a prescribed burn on the lagoon areas. I spent most of the afternoon down there, got to see a burn from start to finish and shot over 300 pictures. It was fascinating to watch and something I’ve been wanting to shoot for a while now as part of my growing passion for native landscape and restoration projects.

It was seriously difficult to choose just one photo for this post. I picked this one because I like the Turner-esque elements and the contrast between the blue sky & orange flames. I’ll post a few more on my Facebook page if you’re interested.

Oh, and thanks to the team from Wetland Habitat Restorations for letting me hang out!

  1. Wow!! That is so beautiful. The orange just grabs you, and the contrast with the sky is beautiful. I will certainly want to see more of those shots. Thanks for taking pictures of something I really have never seen.
