Smoldering by Jacob-Routzahn Smoldering by Jacob-Routzahn
In an area I hike quite often, a wildfire has begun.

Starting Monday evening the burn began in the early afternoon. By Tuesday, 400 acres were on fire with only 5% containment. Wednesday, 1,000 acres with 5% containment.

We'll have to wait and see what happens in the days to come. But rest assured two great areas to go and hike are going to be very interesting subjects once this fire is over.

Oh, and the glowing haze is the smoke rolling off the hillside. The fire's color and the long exposure create the red blanket of smoke.

Update: As of Friday 5/18/2012 the fire has grown to 7,300 acres.

Dear author! I added this your photo to one album on my page in Russian Social Net, because I like it very much, and I wanted to share it with my Russian friends. Will you allow and forgive me for this, or should I delete this wonderful photo from the album? 
Waiting for an answer.

Stunning if scary shot. Love the colors and the clarity here. Such a beautiful scene, sad that it's also devastating.

Thank you and yes it is. Fortunately though the fire is a great way to create new and healthy growth! It was much needed but sad that it happened to such a vast area.

Its amazing how beautiful something so devastating can be. I learned a couple of weeks ago that a place I use to live and still love to visit to hike and camp, is battling wildfires. It is just incredibly sad that so many have broken out.
