I took this from my garden this afternoon of the fire on the western side of the valley where I live. As a retired firefighter all I can say is that the modern firefighter is having it easy. We had to climb that mountain with a beater.

How far away from it are you? Pretty close I would imagine- great captures but be careful

About half a mile away. Taken with my Nikon d300 and Nikkor 80-400VR lens.

It's getting close to the houses know, thankfully they are upwind. The fire started at about 12.30 and is still burning at 17.30. The chopper has made at least 50 passes at the fire.

That last shot with the houses really put it into context - I too reckon you should be able to make some cash out of these shots :cool:
