The Carpenter 1 Fire was a large wildfire on Mount Charleston, 25 miles (40 km) northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada. The fire began on July 1, 2013 near Pahrump, Nevada, before spreading eastward. Carpenter 1 was seen for miles across the Las Vegas metropolitan area, and was the largest fire to occur on Mount Charleston in decades. After eight weeks of battling the fire, Carpenter 1 was fully contained on August 18, 2013. The fire consumed nearly 28,000 acres (11,000 ha). (From Wikipedia)

Hi Eleu
Sinister beauty. Natural disasters can provide good photo opportunities.

Hi Eleu,
One is often divided between extreme fear and a sense of awe and admiration. I wonder why we like to be scared and on the edge of disaster?
Are these one of the few thing we have left to feel alive?

A great scenario ...what a warm and impressive image
just a beautiful poster well done ELEU TABARES

Memories of a former life.


Hi Eleu,
Lovely capture but scary in the damage such fires can and do cause. Clever position of the sun creating the warm colors as opposed to the cooler colors in the opposite of the distant sky.

Hi Eleu, thats usually a good time for some colourful sunsets, smoke has a different effect to clouds. Fiona
