Spring Burn Time!

I had the great fortune to be able to tag along two steps behind DNR  staff during spring burn time at Pyramid State Park last week.
There is just something very primal about the huge walls of fire and ash racing across the prairie. After the fire has passed I can barely wait to get into the burned areas and see what has been revealed. For me the burns are a true sign that spring has arrived.

Yeah they do that alot around here too. I know it has a purpose, but it worries me, so we haven't done it yet...our hay field comes to close to our house for me to be comfy with the idea. I'm sure DH would like to though. :(

Impressive photographs. Scary. I don't think I have left a comment before, but I really love your blog.

As you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting called “5 on the fifth” where You can either take 5 random pictures of anything that happens to you on the 5th of the month (or the days leading up to it) or perhaps go for my suggested theme.

Just post your pictures on your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site – I then update the entry so the world has your link. Remember to mention my blog on your own blog so that your visitors get to see the other contributions.

Interested?

Here’s a link to my blog:

and a link to the “5 on the fifth” entries:
