The Fire

For the first time since the fire near us started( in Colorado), we ventured over into that area. I am happy to report that the fire is 50% contained and to my knowledge no structures have been lost, mainly because it is in such a remote area. All roads that were previously closed are now open. I took this shot from my moving car, as they have posted signs not to stop along the road. Stopped traffic was getting in the way of fire fighters.

It shows a helicopter that has just filled it's bucket in a nearby pond. He will then release the water over some of the flareups that are still burning.

  1. You did a very good job of capturing that moment from a moving car.

  2. A familiar sight here in summer also Janey. So glad to hear that the fire's being contained, scary stuff!
