Uploaded: May 24, 2007


Taken at a "Burn to Learn" in Central Oregon where I was asked to photo-document the burn for the participating fire departments, and the local paper. I was 25' behind this gent who was 50' from the fire and could only stand there for a matter of seconds before the heat became unbearable. This image is the Signature Shot in the People section of the Photography On The Net Book Volume 2, 2008 nd was chosen as such by a vote of my peers. A May 2007 Editors First Pick and a BetterPhoto Members Favorite A May 2007 & June 2008 Second Place Winner.

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
