Grab Shot 117 - "Fire Getting Close"


"Forrest fires in Central Oregon are a part of daily life," says Buck Heim. "This person takes a moment to notice just how close this burn is to town, while her teammates focus on marching their Outrigger to the banks of the Deschutes for an afternoon practice."

"There’s not a lot to this shot other than grabbing my camera and firing. I stopped down the lens to get some depth and maybe get the shutter slow enough to pick up some motion."

Buck captured this grab shot with his Nikon D200 and a 50mm lens. The settings were 1/80th at f-11
