    Night Fire

    _909002202-L.

    E-M5+Tamron 90mm F2.5 @ F4 60 seconds


    Strangely enough after ~4 pm all the dramatic smoke cleared and was held low to the ground but wind. So odd to have a ~4000 acres on fire but no smoke. Very little smoke this morning, too.

    Thanks for sharing. I have a view of the north side and on Monday morning, pre-dawn the fire line was very clear. This morning it wasn't visible at all and no smoke. Looks like they are getting this one contained pretty quickly.
