Not so luminous landscape: Holy Fire, CA
« on: August 11, 2018, 03:03:39 am »

Holy Fire as seen from Fullerton CA a couple days ago. Six floors up in an office building.

From ABC: "The smoke from the California wildfires has not only been impacting the West Coast. Incredibly enough, it has reached New York City -- 3,000 miles away."

"plugsnpixels"
Valuable accounts, all of them. #4 is perhaps the best commentary with the smoke dark sky and the sprawling asphalt lot with all it's cars.
Thank you for posting this.

Just arrived at our lake cabin in western Wisconsin to find a haze everywhere, so much I can even smell the smoke. But it should make for a nice sunset tonight.

I wish I could send enough to make a difference. It is a real tragedy.

Unfortunately it's like this pretty often.

Not even a year ago (October 2017) I took similar photos of a large fire in the same mountains.

I remember our first visit to Palm Springs in 2005. We were there five days and it rained all five. We remarked to a local how green the desert was, and he replied there would be wildfires that summer and fall.

View from my house in Irvine its about a two hour drive 55 miles up to Santiago peak on top of saddleback mountain. The flames were rolling with the winds wish I had longer glass at home to photograph this blaze correctly.
