HOTFRIDAY

Hi all, Im sorry.....a little late in uploading. - I humbly beg your forgiveness and mercy :-)

Well, I was visiting a friend in Denmark -one day we were out driving when we noticed a black plume of smoke beginning to rise behind a small wooded area. The plume soon began to grow quite huge (!) so we decided to check it out. As it turned out, we were actually among the first on the scene. But alas, unfortunately there wasnt anything we could do, really. Eventually the fire brigade showed up (having driven there from the nearest town), but by then, most of the crops, wich were ready for bale-ing (sp?) had all gone up in smoke.
-The pole in the picture fell to the ground when the fire got to it!
-The weather was swelteringly hot & dry, and had been so for many days.

Wow nice timing for this weeks theme! I hope it was an intentional burn...sometimes my Grandfather would light the feild on fire just to keep the weeds at bay.
Great entry!

Karlbark...when I first looked at this photograph...I thought it was an intentional burn of the field...but upon reading your narrative....it was obviously a fire out of control....it was lucky that you noticed this fire......great capture.......

This is a terrible loss, all the work and all that food, great shot, it sure looks like a big area burned.

Great shot. Must have been a scary experience.
I have helped neighbors fight a grass fire....hot and hard work. Glad that the professionals responded quickly.
