PV Fire
by Don Stouder (Don26812) 
Camera:
Canon EOS 400-D
Location:
California
 
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
Picture was taken of the brush fire in Rolling Hills Estates on August 27, 2009. The camera was on a tripod, and the exposure time was 30 seconds. Light trails are from fire department and/or police helicopters. The dotted one is from one apparently using a spotlight. You can see the illumination from it on the hillside at the left. The question that begs to be asked is where are the people who live in the homes? Were they evacuated?

Congrats on you POTD. What drama and terror you captured--as if you were in danger yourself getting the shot.

Incredible drama captured..along with the intensity and warmth. A tragic scene well documented..my thoughts will linger with them. Congrats on a powerful and well captured POTD!

A dramatic, sad & powerful photo journalistic capture which leaves one with several questions regarding the tragedy & safety of all involved. Congrats Don on your POTD today!
