Photo Of The Day – Sand Fire, Day 2


Title: Sand Fire, Day 2

Location: Topanga State Park, San Fernando Valley, California, USA, North America

Description: Across the valley from where I live a large size fire started on Friday. Now 20,000 acres with 1600+ firefighters involved, this photo was taken on the second day of the burn as winds shifted and moved ash over the valley. This is about as close as I care to get to wildfires.
