Ian Bramham from Manchester, United Kingdom

very firey tone Pavan!....well done!

I've been looking out for ages for a similar scene to this that I can photograph for myself but I want to get the setting sun in the background which really limits the opportunities.

@Ian Bramham: I know what you mean Ian and going by your track record, I'm sure I'll see it on one of your future posts:)

Jason Kravitz from Brussels, Belgium

beautiful evening it is - fire in the sky is an appropriate metaphor

as a film-maker, how do you find shooting on location and waiting for perfect moments like this? Like Ian says, you can seek out this type of shot for quite a while before you are treated to it - I suppose many bigger budget films these days would just create it with lighting but there something to be said for getting the real thing!

@Jason Kravitz: Many thanks for your appreciation Jason! As for your query, I quite enjoy the process, patience being one of the first pre-requisites for a film-maker...most of our time on shoots is spent waiting things to turn up, be it the stars or then nature (the 'right' light conditions)! Although DI has made our life significantly simpler these days! But then, as you say ' nothing like getting the real thing..'!

Wow! Incredible shot and colour. At first I thought it was a fire, but I see that is not the case. Wonderful colour and tones...

The passionate mode of mother nature is so well depicted here. And I love the superb framing you have done here with one part of grass right in the middle.
