March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

Williams Fire 2012 Above Azusa / Glendora


Click photo for larger view.

An unfortunate combination of smoke from a devastating forest fire mixed with the wonder of a colorful sunrise.  The smoke from the Williams fire can be seen filling the bowl shaped indentation in the mountains on the left side of the photo.

The fire has burned approximately 4,000 acres in the Angeles National Forest so far and is only about 5% contained.

Not a Monrovia based photo, thank goodness, but it can be seen and smelled around town.
