Fire creates life, this is nature. Fires should not be put out unless they are a danger to property; other than that let them burn the forest will renew itself. The structure of pinecones are evidence of this.

It is sad, but part of nature. I just hope that you and the other folks there are safe and don't lose your homes/property. Thank you for posting this magnificent photo.

About turbguy

turbguy

I've recently retired to Laramie, Wyoming from back east. Most of the shots I show are taken as I and my dog hike in the prairies. SEE MY STEREO (3D) SHOTS! See my blog on this site for viewing instructions. Search for the word "STEREO" in photo titles on this site to see them all! All photos were taken with a Nikon Point-and-Shoot, a Coolpix 7600. It's amazing how good the results can be from such a simple camera! Most shots here (and MANY more) can be seen on my flickr account, at http://www.flickr.com/photos/turbguy/ Create your own visitor map!
