Hot To the Touch by Jacob-Routzahn Hot To the Touch by Jacob-Routzahn
As the Hewlett Gulch Wildfire continued to burn into the night, sharp winds continually stoked the flames. This produced massive flames in excess of thirty feet or more incinerating everything in its path.

However, the beautiful glow did create quite a mood. And the flames too. I love the silhouettes of the trees just outside the flames.

The unfortunate thing is this fire is right where two major trails I hike are located. They certainly will be interesting subjects in the weeks to come.

It was extremely impressive in more than one way. The fire that is ;)

I can understand. High adrenaline levels, probably, too.

Maybe a little. A little less of an adrenaline high when you've got a 70-200 at 200.

Amazing shot of the fire. I was never able to get to a point where I could actually see any flames.

They only allowed people in a few days after the fire began then closed everything off. Are you from around Fort Collins? This was in between Gray Rock trail head and Hewlett Gulch trail head along hwy 14.

Yeah, I am from around Fort Collins. I was gone when the fire started, but had to drive through a lot of smoke to get home and was sorta hoping to be able to see something more than smoke

Yeah you had to go up the Poudre Canyon to really see anything.

This is amazing. I love the shadows. =)

Where is Hewlett Gulch? Last wildfire I saw upclose was The Diamond Lake fire on Mt. Hood, rOregon. They had all the roads closed off, so we couldn't get any good shots, but from around where I lived a got a pic of Mt. Hood through the smoke. It's on my page. =)

Oh wow! Nice shot! And thank you for the comment :) Hewlett Gulch is about 20 minutes NW of Fort Collins CO down the Poudre Canyon. It was getting dangerously close up until a couple of rainstorms finally pushed through to help the forest fire fighters. Those guys are bad asses!
