very impressive, you must have been pretty close to the action to catch this so clearly! I shot pictures of the Crown Valley fire here in S. California a couple of years ago, and got a really bad sinus infection from breathing in all that ash....Be careful !

It was hard to see what this image was in the smaller version but it is so dramatic when viewed on the larger scale.
Do hope you and your property are safe Dan??!!
Great capture.

Reminds me of when I was a child in CA, and we could see the mountain wildfires from our house....excellent, dramatic capture! Hope it wasn't too close to you.

Very cool shot, abit too light though, I think. Under image, adjustments there's a function called "shadow/highlighting". Try that one for making the highlights less outspoken and for darkening the rest abit to achievemore saturated colors. I think, it would make it more dramatic and emotional. Try it:-)
