The Burning Bush by ChickensAndDucks The Burning Bush by ChickensAndDucks
An out of control fire near my house that burnt over 88,000 acres. Fire fighters were just of the other side of that bush with their trucks trying to keep this fire from crossing SR 132.

This looks so scary yet awe inspiring in it's raw power. I hope everyone was safe.

no one was hurt! it was finally contained at over 110,000 acres burnt. That bush was about 5 yards off the side of the road. I was on the other side of the road. I was afraid i wouldn't get my camera and tripod out of the car in time for the photo.

A very "brave" shot! Strange and sad that such devastation can create such beauty. Beautifully captured!

This is quite an amazing photo. Having had a brother who used to work on the forest fires in CA, i can well appreciate the dangers. You were lucky to get this, and glad that you got out safely. Wildfires can change direction so fast that you can't run fast enough to get away. The firefighters carry a small protection shelter that they put up over themselves in the hopes that the fire burns over them and keeps going. Not something I'd really like to contemplate doing.

The behavior of fire has always fascinated me. Nice shot.
