Once again I enjoyed the opportunity to explore mankind's primordial connection to the land and the flame during the early spring pasture burn.

Aunt Tee was very prepared.

Unfortunately a light rain the day before and high humidity limited the fire coverage across the field. But the flames advanced through thicker areas of brush as intense walls of heat and smoke.

The wind slowed to a light breeze and a haze clung to the earth. Another pasture burn, another smokey sunset.
