Our 11th and 12th grade church youth collected 14 christmas trees leaned them in a teepee style andvery hot 40 foot flames were the result. Yes, this took place in a very safe enviroment (an open pasture) with adult supervision.

It started like this...

Hi Thunder I like how you captured theflames from active to almost ashes. Its amazing something so big as the flames desenegrates into just small flames. Great shots!

There was a "hot time in the town" that night! I can't tell exactly how high the flames were but I am guessing you could feel the heat from a couple hundred feet away. In the second shot, there is some color in the flames like there was something metallic in the coals. I think it is nickel that colors the flames green.

Another great pair of shots that fulfils the challenge very well.

Thanks for the comments. The fire department did come and told us to make sure the fire was out before we left.
