Sorry ... I just absolutely freaked out when I saw this. Basically, I took the auto-focus off and aimed the lens just above the fire. The plan was to catch the embers as they flew up, but I definitely wasn't expecting this amazing shit. Love it. If you click on it, you can see the larger versions of each. Just awesome. Haha. I'm getting all excited when this is probably something you do in Photographer 101 class. I'm lame, I know!
This one was especially gorgeous.
Normal fire ...
My annoying boots & delicious beer ... this is pretty white trash, right?
And of course, I have to present them! Once again ... lame, I know.
Anyway, I got too cold [and wanted to blog!] so I came in and left the boys outside to keep the fire going. I'm sure there will be several more fire pictures this season!
