Fiery Sunset

a sunset enhanced by smoke from wildfires

Smoke hangs over our valley from the massive wildfires in Colorado, creating surreal sunsets. San Luis Valley, Colorado, USA, 2012

On the day I took this photo, Colorado was home to eight active wildfires, and our neighbor New Mexico was battling five fires.



    • Some have been started by lightning, which easily happens because Colorado gets so many lightning strikes every year and everything is bone dry. Sadly, they suspect that arson is the cause of the Waldo Canyon Fire.
