Tribute to Firefighters by Corvidae65 Tribute to Firefighters by Corvidae65
Another of the shots I took of a truckload of cornstalk bales that caught fire near O'Neill, Nebraska. I took a lot of shots but only a couple are worth processing in my opinion.

I liked this one--the firefighter standing in front of that bright light made his shadow seem larger than life--larger than the fire he was tasked to fight. It seemed to me that as the fire reared it's flaming head that the firefighter grew to meet the challenge and overcome it.

No one was injured in this fore and no real property lost--even the truck, trailer and driver got out only a little singed.

I dedicate this picture to all firefighters who have fallen in the line of thier duty and who have served or are serving. Many are volunteers and some are professional, but it makes no difference. They protect us when things get hot. Thank you!

THanks Evan :) It was quite the conflaguration. I think I'm going to make some nice prints and take them to the Atkinson and O'Niell VFD's.
