playing with fire

boys trip through the northern region of Costa Rica, we came across a farmer, who set a few ditch fires to tame his undergrowth.  Little did he know that the mixture of wind and lack of moisture would turn his controlled burn into somewhat of a situation.  The fire spread to the side of the road as he stood cursing at one end of the blaze, swatting it with a broom-shaped stick.  I seized the opportunity to snap a few pics amongst the chaos, as he, and his family spent the the better part of an hour swatting out the blaze.  

The fuji proved once again to be a more than adequate tool for the job.
