Last Friday just before noon, I received an invitation via phone call to come and photograph a practice burn for 2 local fire departments just down the road from where I live. Of course, I said YES, as I enjoy photographing fire and seeing as I have worked with some of these fine gentlemen before in another practice burn that they did with our town's department, I was all the more pumped to get out and photograph for them. Saturday morning was foggy, misty and the roads were just a little slick, but not bad enough to keep me at home and the departments from practice. There was very little to no wind and the conditions were just right for this burn. The 2 departments are small rural departments with not quite as many members as our town's department. They are small but mighty departments and when we as a rural community can work together and practice like this, it shows the respect and camaraderie that communities can have together. Anyway, I got lots of great shots and had a ton of fun with this bunch. I just want to say thank you very much to the Roland and Lowe Farm, Manitoba Fire Departments for asking me to come and photograph for you. It was my absolute pleasure and I look forward to doing it again sometime. Here is a sneak peek at some of the shots captured that day! Enjoy!
