Drivers remove recovery trucks from scrapyard blaze

By philtaylorphoto  
Staff were forced to remove trucks to safety as fire spread through a burning scrapyard in Bury, Lancashire.

It was a long night.

This is without post processing, straight from the camera, as sent to the desk as it happened.

A bit of shadow lifting might help?

It'll help the detail, but probably not the atmosphere...

Scary stuff.

A tiny burst of flash would have helped, but nowadays at incidents have reflective high visibility clothing on, which flashes back and overexposes.

I do wonder about both Hi-Vis vests and blue lights - utterly dazzling, and distracting at times!

Never found it a problem when driving, but the new high intensity lights against night scenes are a pain to photograph.

Last night I had my first RTC of the year to cover, and everything just flared out.
