Fire can be a strange substance. It’s cozy in a campsite while roasting hotdogs and marshmallows. It can be destructive in excess. If a forest it can be very strange, from a small ember to creating its own weather.
I’ve been through a couple of forest fires, the first one was a mess. The second one, well, my friend is still upset with me for trying to burn up her car. We were driving on a back road and it turned into a forest fire. I had her stop and ran out with my camera to a burning stump and got this shot. It’s a once in a lifetime shot.
