Forest Fire Sunset by honda-vfr Forest Fire Sunset by honda-vfr
this was taken near Bingham, NM. there is a large forest fire west of here, over 100,000 acres. it has made for some spectacular sunsets. i've done nothing to the photo except a small brightness and contrast adjustment.

Nothing like a desert sunset or sunrise. Truly a sight to behold. I love the ruby red colours against the desert.

no, they are about 100 miles away, but it is a huge fire, almost 150,000 acres. the wind really made it grow huge.

i was on US 380 and saw the windmill off the road. it was a mad dash over ranch roads for about 2 miles to beat the sun.
