I have good or bad news for you today depending on your point of view. I have one more day of images / video from the fire burn that I’ll show tomorrow. If you’ve enjoyed the fire narrative and images then it’s bad news because we’re done. If you’re tired of them then it’s good news because we’re done. 🙂
Up close and personal with the fire in this image.
This was pretty cool how the entire structure collapsed in on itself. The result of excellent planning and execution.
Once the fire started it didn’t take long to completely consume the structure. I’ll say it again there is something that is very engrossing about watching a fire. It’s exciting, emotional, and scary all at the same time.
I shot this image with my new Sigma AF 15 mm f2.8 diagonal fish-eye lens. I’ve never had a super wide-angle lens. I’m still in the newbie stage of shooting with it so I haven’t really learned how to make the best use of it.
This is Brandon Beck. As you recall Brandon is an investigator with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and is an avid pilot of Phantom Quad Copters. He stopped by my office yesterday to bring me some really neat stickers he had created for the Phantom.
While there he showed me his video of the fire scene. It is a little over 3.5 minutes and beautifully rendered. I told you a few days ago that Brendon attached a GoPro camera on the fire helmet of his brother, Bjorn. Bjorn was going to do some fire heat training and they wanted to capture that on video.
When you look at the video you’ll see Bjorn holding a device that looks at first like a cell phone but it is actually an infrared sensor. It measures the heat of a fire and where Bjorn was, it registered 1200 degrees. The camera got very hot. 🙂
That’s it for today. Hope you enjoy your day. I’m doing some training at Camp Courageous today. One of my favorite training sessions to do.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Be careful.
