> Last summer I covered the Black Crater forest fire. I was sending from the Sisters Middle School and for some reason didn't save my take on my laptop after putting it in the system. I just recently dug up the original files for contest purposes. On deadline I sent a vertical version of this image but aesthetically I like this horizontal version better. I shot it from a nearby dormant volcano with a 300/2.8 after the sun went down. As I recall it was a 30 second exposure. It illustrates how difficult it was for firefighters to deal with this type of fire. It burned all summer.
