58th Butte Fire Academy
I dropped off the face of the earth and lost some followers, but I've been super busy and haven't picked up my camera in so long!  To my friends who I haven't seen in a while I hope to catch up on your work and get posting here again soon.  I've spent the last 19 weeks studying Fire and EMT at the Butte Fire Academy at Butte College, Oroville, CA.  This video was made by a friend and fellow Cadet +Alberto Olmos and shows a bit of the program out on the Training Grounds which accounted for 40% of the academy.  The other 60% of the academy was 7 hrs a day of classroom lecture and testing requiring a passing grade of 80% or better.  I think this video sums it up really well and the BEST video I've seen of the academy.  Enjoy and let's catch up soon!

BIG THANKS TO ALL +Fire Friday CONTRIBUTORS!
CIRCLE SHARE OF THE FIRST 503 CONTRIBUTORS TO #FIREFRIDAY
Since nearly the beginning of Daily Photography Themes (DPT) on G+, FireFriday has been a place for people to share photographs of anything fire related.  I've had the pleasure of meeting some great people through this DPT and have been absolutely inspired by you all.  I've enjoyed the different takes on the subject and continue to look forward to more of your outstanding contributions to FireFriday.  
Also, due to the limit of 500 in a circle-share, the pages +Wandering Shutterbug and +Prometheus Imaging were left out of the circle unfortunately, but your contributions are no less appreciated.  It was the only way I could share the whole circle.

Wildfire captured in it's truest form: Wild

#FireFriday  curated by +Grayson Hartman

Here's a photo taken during a wildfire in northern California along the infamous HWY 70 corridor along the Feather River, specifically a ridge that spurs from Red Hill.  
The early morning rays of sunlight pierce the smoke as embers drop from the sky. The flames grow outward in a perfect circle until they all converge into one.  It was an amazing site to see.  
In the end, it was a two day firefight that started off of the highway by the river at 2500' and ended at the communication towers at the peak at 6300' elevation.  This photo is the morning of day two, when a crewmember woke the captain and said, "there's a crackling sound and I think it's fire."  Captain replied: "It's probably just a bear," and rolls over.  We were packed up anddiggin... more »

a rare glimpse and a happy ending
During the late summer/ early fall the Northern California fire season comes to roaring heights. This picture comes from the burning operations of multiple wildland firefighting crews over the course of three days and nights. This burn-out operation was attributed to saving the town of Hayfork, CA from the impending firefront.

Another great #firefriday contribution from +Lori Hibbett !

This was taken after sunset at the TRE fire we had about a week ago. This is for +Grayson Hartman and his #firefriday daily photography theme. This area has been hit pretty hard by wildfires over the past year. Not much tinder left to burn so they are probably on the safe side for about 20+ years now.___Another great #firefriday contribution from +Lori Hibbett !

Sharing my Drinks on Fire shot that was made for +Chrysta Rae's Photography Scavenger Hunt this past March. It was a blast to make, as it involved lighting Bacardi 151 on fire in the living room on a large mirror. Though this is a composite image of the best flame captures in multiple shots, the colors and reflections are true to life.

.. and a reminder today is #firefriday curated by +Grayson Hartman (me) :) Have a great weekend!

I like this Chrome extension for the desktop. Thanks, +Cem İnceçınar!

via +Alan Shapiro

This chrome extension i just wrote is removes the height limit of the images on google+ stream. Also eliminate the #blackspace around the images. +Vic Gundotra should see this, also #whitespace stream people who have some design complaints. The result is really sweet. Im sure everyone related #photography will like this.

+Alex Leonard and +Alan Shapiro probably love that. Open the ideas for make it better. Please rate and share if you like it.___I like this Chrome extension for the desktop. Thanks, +Cem İnceçınar!

* #FireFriday * - An extreme "catface"
It's that time again - Share your images of Fire. Anything fire goes - from a wildfire, to a tip of a match shot macro, to even smoke from a fire, fire houses, and fire hoses. Fire People! Please tag my name so I'll see them.

About this photo: Taken in '07, this is an extreme case of a catface - a fire scar at the base of a tree. Thought too dangerous to cut, wood was placed inside to make the fire larger in hopes to have it fall on it's own. Very often trees can withstand large catfaces and survive, but this was too big. The day was getting long and it hadn't fallen yet so .. a little nip in the back with a chainsaw and it's down, safe to work around, and no longer a threat to the crews and the control of the wildfire. Hope you enjoy a little slice of my past life and don't mind me sharing these :)

Toad Chaser and Father

In the midst of Chrysta Rae's March Scavenger Hunt - which is now completed (http://goo.gl/9KSfc) - I still couldn't let a possibly epic sunset get away. I rushed to the park to watch it unfold. The sun dipped below a bank of clouds and the light never came. Switch to Plan B - silhouettes on the lake. I didn't have time to set up a tripod so I cranked up the ISO and shot this handheld f/5.6 at 1/200th, 150mm.
Looking forward to seeing all the Scavenger Hunt photos!

I really like this one from +Wes Lum. Way to step back and think creatively while everyone else is setting up for the same shot. The reflections of the silhouettes and the B&W is killer, too.
If you haven't circled Wes, you should :)

One of the coolest things is being added by someone you've been following for a long time.

On the flip side, it's really sad when you find out someone who had you circled, uncircled you.

To those who've circled me back, thank you!
To those who've uncircled me, I'm sad to see you go... :(
But that's Google+...circle your interests, and don't circle those that don't interest you. I sure wish they'd up the number of people you can circle though!

To those who've circled me, and I have not circled you back, hope you leave a comment so I can check out your profile!

Thanks for the great hangout today +Andy Gray, +Billy Wilson, +Elizabeth Lund, +Justin Hill, +Kellianne Hutchinson, +mark helm, +Mark Rodriguez, +Ugo Cei, +Shinae Nae Robinson, +Mary Sass Clark, +Steve Gill, +Boris Gorelik!___I really like this one from +Wes Lum.

Blue Door
Island of Capri, Italy

You've maybe seen a few other posts from me about Capri, but it's because it was such a beautiful day when I was there last year. There's a system of fortifications on the rugged and isolated parts of the Island to protect the military quarters at the rear from enemy attack.

I didn't find any info on this particular structure, but believe it's probably part of the fortification system, high on top of Monte Solaro.

It's like the green trees are hugging the dead ones after a fire burnt it's way through the Fishlake NF, UT.

Deer Creek Waterfall

#waterfallwednesday curated by +Eric Leslie

With waders and a sturdy tripod, I captured this waterfall looking downstream. The hard part was blending the exposures in Photoshop.

#btlcritique #critiquepls for the blending of exposures and photo overall. I appreciate your critiques. Thanks!

Fire Friday #firefriday
June 21st, 2008. 2000+ fires later
21 days after the June 21st lightning bust we returned to our training room to find it was exactly how we left it - books open, pens out, half drank bottles of water. It was an experience I will never forget. 3 days later we were back in the same spot. This time the fire we were working (~800 acres, 1 crew of 21 people in the wilderness) grew together with a handful of other fires to create 1 fire, I believe they called it the Yellow Fire. We looked across the Cottonwood Creek drainage into the Shasta-Trinity National Forest at a 1 blade dozer line that stretched from top to bottom. It was a dozer line from hell. Within days we found ourselves burning off that dozer line. It took 3 days with winds in our face and heavy air support helping with spot fires and slop-overs. All in all, it was 78 consecutive paid days with only 7 days... more »

The first day of summer 2008, June 21st, set off a summer to remember, as I expect +Grayson Hartman remembers. Starting the previous day in the Coastal Range, dry lightning busts lit up California to the tune of over 2000 fires. End of June thru July I could barely see, ....or breath. First shot is from ~Paradise, CA northwards, and the second shot is from around Oregon Peak northwards to the S. and Middle Fork Feather River confluence. Also I'll throw in a sunset shot from that fateful first day of summer. For #firefriday by +Grayson Hartman , a reminder for #forestfriday by +Rudolf Vlček & for #stormyfriday by +Reinhard Latzke

A Single Torch

A tree torches at the edge of an open, grassy glade in the Umatilla National Forest, SE Washington State during the many fires that burned in 2007.

This one for #firefriday curated be me :)
