One would NOT expect this to be such a pleasing=-to-the-eye image. But it IS! #1481674

Thanks, Michelle. I got there too late to get many shots with the flames shooting up, so I took my time and tried to find pleasing compositions, etc. This shot is an HDR composite of 3 exposures with some fancy sharpening techniques applied in Photoshop.
