Our group enjoys a roaring campfire and a moonlit night at Pipe Springs in Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona.<br />

Photography Tip:  Blocking the brightest part of the firelight from shining directly into my camera's lens with something is a trick that I use whenever possible to prevent that area of my campfire ring images from blowing out.  <br />
<br />
In this case, the "American flag chair" made the perfect shield for the most intense part of the fire's light.  But I still had to shoot a lot of these frame before I was certain that I had the right moment when the firelight did not rise above the back of the chair and yet the fire's glow was still bright enough to illuminate my friends faces.<br />
