viewing the photos taken during the day Trev, it seems I accidently took a lot of photos of buxom ladies in costume. Just warning you of what might happen.

he put on quite a show, kept us laughing while blowing the fire. I was close enough to feel the heat, can't imagine what he was feeling.

You couldn't accidentally put some up to see how your talent is without the fire.

he put on a pretty good show Susan, so I changed f/stops and settings several times and this was the best result

You nailed both the action and the exposure. You must be one cool dude to sit there changing settings while all that action is going on.
Great work! Just when I get used to you as a landscape guy you come up with stuff like this.

thanks, that is very kind and I'm glad you enjoy the landscapes because shootin' stuff like this is much harder, I discarded a bunch of them btw.
