Artist's Description

This shot was recently published by The Associated Press, (The AP) and was featured in newspapers, news websites including Yahoo news, Fox, and CNN, magazines, and TV stations around the world. Here is the story surrounding my photograph:

A few nights ago myself and my shooting buddy Paul went to photograph the “Fourmile Canyon Wildfire”,which is burning behind and above the city of Boulder, and what awaited us was something the likes of which I have never seen. I always wanted to photograph a wildfire, but I have to say, I couldn’t help but stop and be reminded of the people who are and have lost their homes, and whose lives are changed forever. Thank goodness for very long lenses is all I can say. I would in no way want to be close to this monster. As soon as I got home I posted it on twitter using twitpic and it went viral and landed in front of those who matter; the photography editors of The Huffington Post and The Associated Press, the rest is history. It was really something watching what is now, Colorado’s most destructive wildfire ever, burning over 200 structures, almost all of which are homes.
