Glow in the sky...








Hey everyone,

These photos were taken last weekend just below Quarryville. I heard the Quarryville Fire Department and mutual aide units get dispatched for a barn fire. So I turned the scanner and heard the additional of two barns well involved. The responding fire chief reported he could see it from a few miles away. I figured my station would go, so I slowly headed down that way. We got dispatched to relocate to Quarryville's station and then got pulled into the scene to establish a water supply.

I was not too happy with how these photos turned out. I did shoot almost all of them manuel and no matter what I did or what settings I changed, nothing seemed to work for me. Oh well, I'll just have to keep practicing...


Have a great weekend everyone!!!

I think they came out fine... but that's just me. I give it to you for keeping it manually. I've had those frustrating moments. That's when it goes back to Auto but sometimes it doesn't work then either.

Your photos are just fine, but what happened to the barn?

I liked your photos, don't worry. Besides it is a "real life" situation, fireman are people that I admire very much.
Happy Skywatch!

Thanks for the comments everyone. I'm my own worst critic. I've been trying to shoot more manuel lately then auto. It does get frustrating at times, but I'll keep at it..

Arija, Two Barns caught fire and as far as I know, no cause has been determined yet...

Some very dramatic captures. Thanks for sharing them.

Being at night and smokey, I think they turned out great. Are the lights that extend up coming from the trucks? I have never seen that before.

Jim,

You are correct. They are light towers that can extend out of the apparatus.
