Fire

Shot for the Gizmodo Shooting Challenge:

I spent Friday evening at a friends place for dinner.  He wanted to do a simple BBQ and I thought it would be the best opportunity to get some fire shots.  The down side is that no one thought to bring any lighter fluid!  After many tries to get the pit started with paper towels and newspaper, I finally relented and went to the local store to get some starter fluid.  When I got back I created a massive ball of flame out of the pit (there were a few lines of “Am I missing an eyebrow?).  Unfortunately none of those picture came out very well.  I did like how simple this one ended up.  Just a lone flame off to the side of the pit.  Thank god for my zoom lens, that fire was HOT!
