More Burning Pictures

Description:
Here is another picture of the beginning process of a field
being burned. As described in other posts, the first
process is back firing along the downwind side of a field,
vitally important in this case, since the downwind side of
the field is a crop of standing wheat.

Description:
The namesake of my uncles' farm is treated with care during
the burning process. It sits in the middle of a 140 acre
field. While not absolutely necessary, we always took care
to backfire around the tree so as to prevent it from getting
scorched when the field was "ringed" with fire. As it stood
in the middle of the field, the rushing winds and heat would
have reduced this tree to nothing with a single burn. But
with proper care, it has survived wonderfully over the
years.

One of my uncles puts the finishing touches on a field burn
by "ringing" the field with fire. Far off in the distance
you can see the edge of the backfire. It will only be a few
moments now and inferno will take over this field.

Re: More Burning Pictures
we sometimes have fieldburns to, but then they're un-wanted.
Notmally they come from a spark out of the exaust of a
combine or swather, or a pickup truck driving thru a field
or the sickle bar hits a rock and sparks....This year
already 8 major straw fires in southern Alberta, 4 combines
burned down and a couple balers went up in smoke, so you
understand that these pictures make me feel a little nervous
for my combining that i'll finish off this week...
