This was the view from the Hexham (NSW) bridge on Thursday. As far as you could see was a grass fire & smoke. Lens aperture f/3.5, shutter speed 1/320sec, focal length 6mm, ISO 200.

Wonderful work here Chris! Your images are more graphic that the ones they used on the TV news!

Fire is always a disturbing sight for me, Chris.
But on an image like this it's pretty fascinating! GREAT job capturing and framing it.

Fine captures and framing, Chris. California is battling some major fires of its own right now. Sad days for so many who have lost their homes.

Thanks for the comments. Mary, I hope we have a lot of pre-fire season burn offs over here this Summer before we have fires like the one in Yosemite National Park.

Gosh this is terrible looking, but a great idea to keep the more worse types of fire away! Great timing, Chris!

Thanks Laura, today there's a bigger one on the opposite side of the river & it is very windy today, glad I'm not out fighting it. Thanks for taking the time to look through my gallery.

Thanks Tammy. We've had a few really bad fires in the last 2 weeks, some deliberately lit.....
