The 35mm 1.8 worked out well here as did the second D500. What a treat it is to have two cameras that can focus in the dark. Most of these were shot in manual mode as well.
I learned a lot during football season, learned to trust the meter in my viewfinder too. When I trust the view finder meter I don't have to waste as much time chimping to see my histogram. There is very little time to capture flames, the fire department had this fire knocked down less that 15 seconds after they started to put water on it.
I don't know what if any of these will be printed. I only released the orange fog photo on my social media account.
