Hi all.

Wanted to share a couple of shots of the Powerhouse fire 6/1/13. I was staying in my camper at a friend's place close to Lancaster, CA. We were keeping an eye on this big fire which started out about 10 miles away on Thursday but moved to within less than a mile by early Sunday morning. We were forced to evacuate on Sunday and my friend's (lets call him Greg since that is his name) house burned to the ground as well as most of the others in that canyon. We had to get a number of vehicles down the mountain then go back up to get more.

I have never been this close to a major forest fire so any advice about shooting fires would be welcomed. I didn't have time to shoot any pictures when the flames came over the ridge and started down the canyon.

Shot with the Sigma 50-500 at 500mm on Nikon D3s. f/6.3-1/160sec-iso 200-auto white balance.

As always, any advice, comments or criticism very welcome.

JIM
