Grassland fire - Arial shot




Grassland fire - Arial shot
This pictures reminds me of an aerial shot of a grassland fire which i had seen in a magazine somewhere.
For me this picture shows the wind blowing the fire towards the right,cinders in between and small bodies of water... :-)

How could i improve this shot?
C & C most welcome.
Thank you :-)

HI vipin, what is the image - can you elaborate a bit further, please?

Great seeing Vipin. Fact that this image has lost its roots to the actual subject makes it a true artisistic - a great abstract for me. I would like to see a b/w conversion, if that suits you.
Thanks for sharing a joyful creation here.

Hi Vipin,
This one looks great but I can't make out what it is. could you elaborate a bit? From the strokes it looks like a van gogh though :)
Thanks for sharing

Thank you everyone... :-)

@ RD: Yes a B/W picture looks great. I was actually inclined towards posting it, but it would miss all the colors of the fire... :-(

And here is the simple elaboration on the subject : ... hotostream

Shot at 2.5x magnification

Super vipin - i had stared so long at this and had said to myself the only thing that has those kinds of circles and patterns is a butterfly or a moth - and there it is. a very interesting take. and to me, it looked more like golden fields billowing in the wind than fire.

nice abstraction here and thanks for the grey-cells work out :)

Thank you :-)

As a matter of fact, the first thing that struck my mind when I shot this was the wild fire...
And eventually I imagined the water bodies and the cinder... ;-)
