Panorama from the fires

Staging at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds
I was shooting some photos around the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds last Thursday just after firefighters had received their marching orders and were about to head to the hills to fight fires. A member of the West Sacramento Fire Department was nice enough to let me climb atop one of their engines. Switching the camera into “stitch” mode, I snapped off a couple of quick photos.
Using computer software, I sewed the photos together into this panorama. Some people around the office enjoyed it, so I’m happy to offer it here as well.
It was interesting seeing so many firefighting vehicles in one place. I hope they were used to maximum efficiency fighting the blazes of the Butte Lightning Fire Complex.
