Los Alamos Fire
As the crow flies, Los Alamos is about 60 miles from Albuquerque. Some people here have been seeing the glow, at night, of the huge forest fire ravaging that town. I sat, for awhile tonight, where I could definitely see the smoke plume, and waited for sunset to see if I could photograph the glow. I may have given up before it was sufficiently dark outside, but I didn't see any fire glow. However, this is a picture of the smoke being lit up and colored by the setting sun. I "played" with this photo a little with various editing tools, which added a little drama to the image.
