    Great shot. But frightening situation. Wishing everyone well.

  • I’ve learned that the fire is 95% contained, so things are definitely looking way up!!! Thank you so very much, Kasia!! I really appreciate it!!! :)))

    A very dramatic image that points up a sad fact about our Southern California brush fires: they are dangerous and destructive and yet they present unique photo opportunities.

  • All of that is so very true, Celeste, I know!!!! But I am glad that you like this image, despite how it came to be…I thank you so, so much!!!! :)))
