One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2018—Surveying the Fire Line

The Stetson wearing fireman at the control burn in Nebraska last week left his truck for a few minutes to survey the fire line with his dog.  He turned the truck around a few moments after I took the first photograph, and the fire flared up so they both ran back to the truck to drive down the hillside to douse the flames before the wind whipped them out of control.  The heat shimmer from the flames is quite pronounced in the upper half of the second photograph, where it is absent from the first.

    Great shots! I love the first especially- the cowboy hatted firefighter, the dog, the ragged flag!
