Live Fire Training

This photo was taken by my son Ian Bennett. Ian is a fire fighter for the City of Seattle; he also works at the Washington State Fire Training Academy in North Bend, Washington. Ian took a series of photos with his smart phone, including this shot of stoking the fire with wooden palettes. I brought them into Lightroom and made some simple adjustments, with the results above. I especially like the way the smoke creates layers of different color.
