Dramatic images. We love them! Capturing successful dramatic images is often a synergy of the right opportunity and being prepared with the right equipment. Jeffery Edwards, last week's BackPacker winner, experienced this when a nearby natural gas line ruptured and ignited:

"The fire was on a main road just outside of my neighborhood. I was coming home from work when it happened. I parked at my house, grabbed my equipment bag and ran to the fire.

This photo was taken with an Canon EOS 70D; 70-200 f2.8L lens; settings 1/2000 @ f3.5 ISO 100.

The telephoto lens was a purchase from just a couple of days prior and this was really my first opportunity to use it." Jeffery
