Charlestown, MA 070610 Firefighters seek relief from the heat under the shade while covering their heads with wet towels and by getting hosed with cool water after battling a four -alarm fire at the intersection of Cross and High Streets in Charlestown on July 6, 2010. (Essdras M Suarez/ Globe Staff)/ MET BEHIND THE SCENE: I showed up to the office today one hour earlier to catch up on some editing and the moment I sat down they sent me out to cover this four-alarm fire. The fire turned out to be structural damage and no injuries so the focus of the assignment immediately switched from the fire to the close-to 100 heat wave we are experiencing. TECH STUFF: Pretty straight forward shooting low ISO 200, high speed about 3000th to 5000th of a second; thus, the frozen droplets of water. Lens 70-200. D.O.F. at about 2.8- 4.5. WB cloudy

Dude .. you are so clever, but how do you get "frozen droplets of water" on such a hot day?
