That's a HUGE fire James! OMG! I don't even like to sweat - so, I can't imagine how hot you must have gotten to get this shot. The colors and tones in that fire and superb, but I hope they got it under control!

Belated congratulations on this amazing winner, James! Wow, I'd be nervous about the heat and my camera (not to mention myself)--doubt I could hold it still to get a good shot!
