Taken the night I watched the Flint Hills burning, I was unable to exposure longer due to an approaching fire line. The fire was more light pollution problem than risky conditions. Despite the situation I was surprised how well the image turned out. Poor matching of the dark frame temperature lead to the blueish area lower right.
