Blackened earth

Rushing around covering the Barnhart Fire last Thursday, I was only able to snap a few photos. I also found, later that evening, the dirt caked in my ears from the dust-filled winds.
I got a few photos of this firefighter lighting a backburn near Yoakum Grade Road. Another similar photo appeared in Friday's paper.
I found it exciting to be so close to the flames. There were other spots where it was burning just on the other side of the road.
I like this shot because it shows how black fire leaves the fields.
