Canon 5D Mark III + 15mm fish­eye lens. 2.5sec @ f/6.3

This is from a heli-drop trip we did on Joss Peak near Revel­stoke. We rode around in the af­ter­noon and then shot the sun­set. We hiked to the shel­ter at the top and started a fire and then the storm came rolling in, which was pretty scary be­cause we were right at the peak. I just put my fish­eye lens on and, be­cause it was windy, all the sparks from the fire were fly­ing straight into the cam­era. I took a couple of ex­po­sures and saw there was some light­ning in the background. In an­other shot I ac­tu­ally got a whole lot of light­ning bolts, but I chose this photo be­cause my friend Matt Yaki is a per­fect sil­hou­ette stand­ing in front of the fire and there was also some re­ally good de­tail in the clouds.
