Fire on the Mesa

Fire on the Mesa

This is an image from a giant fire that broke out Friday evening about 2 miles from my home.  It was contained rather quickly due to quick action from the fire department, but the burning items, a huge pile of tires, caused a massive plume of black smoke.  It was quite impressive.  To show the image in the way I wanted to, I added contrast and desaturated all the colors except reds and oranges.  If you look at the size of the fire engine in the photo, it gives you an idea of the scale of this fire.

Enjoy the photo!  Other examples of my work are available on
