UNM Red Rally September 2018

The annual burning of the Aggie before the UNM / NMSU rivalry football game.

Red Rally 2018 with more fire!

This was my second Red Rally on the UNM campus, which is the burning of the Aggie from rival school NMSU before the football game. It is quite the spectacle because it is not every day one sees something 40 feet go up in flames, and this year there seemed to be a lot more flames for a lot longer! The pyrotechnics team must have learned something since the 2017 Red Rally.

I photographed the event with a Nikon D750 and Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lens @ f/1.8 1/60th for every shot only varying the ISO between 640 and 2000 depending on how close and bright the fire was!
