City Daily Photo Theme Day: Big



Pyrocumulus cloud.

The combining of the "Big" theme and the wildfire raging out of control in the local mountains seemed unavoidable. I can't think of anything bigger, or more devastating, here at the moment than the Station fire and the accompanying smoke clouds.

That's Mt. Wilson in the lower left with the transmission towers.

Keith, what an utterly beautiful shot yet we know what made it. I hope the weather changes soon and those awful fires die down. Stay safe.

Great shot. Don't spend too much time outside. That air isn't good for us. And I hope people stay safe.

If that cloud was not made of smoke from the ground fires I would say it's beautiful...

We've been hearing so much about this fire, but as a one time resident of the area, we couldn't quite get the feel from TV where the fire really was. This amazing shot with Mt. Wilson in the foreground puts it all in all in perspective. How devastating.
JT said…
Wow! Great shot.
Keith said…
Thanks everyone for all the comments and kind words, I just wish it were under better circumstances. The latest is that the southeastern edge of the fire is headed this way. Stay tuned...
I missed seeing this. Stuck on a deadline and unable to take the heat. I caught the tail end
