    Reported by:

    In the countryside around Rome, every summer, there are fires that devastate large areas and sometimes reach settlements, causing huge damages and even dead and injured. Often these fires are caused by unscrupulous criminals. Firefighters are forced into a grueling and dangerous job, tackling flames and smoke to try to limit damage. To be firefighters means jeopardizing your own safety, to keep safe the ambient, animals, and people.

    Yeh, this is pretty EPIC! Well done. I particularly like the single figure in amongst the carnage and chaos in tackling a forest fire. There is a beautiful balance of light and colour to this frame too, that is exaggerated by the grainy effect. I can feel the heat and I can feel the danger here as the smoke and ash fills my eyes. Great job!
