Forest Fire
01-AUG-2010

Forest Fire

Along the shores of Lake Superior. A west bound inter-models headlights streak through the Jackfish Tunnel.

To date: the most work I've ever done for a shot; drove 14hrs, hiked over a mile through deep bush with all gear (camera and camping) on my back. Scouted a camping site, set-up site and set-up shot.
Lets just say - my wife really loves me for putting up with these adventures.
Oh, and the title comes from my aunt who when I showed her the picture, expressed real concern that we camped near a forest fire and in bear country.

Canon EOS 1D Mark II N
128s f/6.3 at 15.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Very impressive shot Brad - and great use of the wide angle to provide clarity throughout the shot.
