Details:
My second greatest fear in planning a photo shoot usually only occurs at this time of the year (the first greatest fear is being clouded out), and it happened tonight: field burnings. The entire western sky up to 15 degrees above the horizon was reddened by the smoke from farmers burning their fields in preparation for spring planting. Canon Rebel XTi with 300mm and 135mm Nikkor lenses @ f/8 and f/5.6 respectively, exposures ranging from 1/5th second to 30 seconds at ISO 100.
