Hot Training Day

Firefighter during a "training" fire. This Firefighter pushes the collapsing wall back into the remains of the house assuring the fire doesn't spread.

    Dianaq, thanks for the comment. For this one I was using a Minolta Maxxum 3xi with a 70-210 telephoto lens and 800 speed film. I was about 60 feet away and the heat was very uncomfortable at that distance. I was told by the "Captain" at about the time I took this picture their infrared sensor read the temp. at 930 degrees F. I came away with a new sense of awe for Firefighters.

    Micheal this is really awesome. The colors almost look surreal. It's "hot" in every way. By the way what kind of cameras do you use?
