This is an annual event in Alliston Ontario. The burning of the dead.

Dead Christmas trees if you want specifics. And being a film about fire there were a couple of songs out there with the word "fire" in them, so obviously I used one to drive home the fact that this was a film involving... fire.

Shot with the Canon 5D and the 24-105mm. I'm not happy with the first few shots. Lots of noise, overexposed, not thinking. Got some decent shots in the middle, but nothing on a tripod. Watching your 2 year old around a big bonfire and fireworks display doesn't make for the most focused shooting.

I did get a couple of decent photos though. If your up for it, they're on my site. ajleitch.com/2011/01/alliston-bonfire/
