The Station Fire part 3

After a long week, I’ve finally had a chance to sit down and add a few more photos from the Station Fire shoot last weekend. Fortunately the fire no longer threatens any homes. Thinking about the fire I have realized that the station fire has burned through areas I hiked just a few months back. I have several GPS tagged photographs from various parts of Josephine Peak, Strawberry Peak, and Colby Canyon. Perhaps when the area is made accessible again I can return and take “after” photographs of the burn area, matching location, lens and views of my earlier photographs. I expect the result will be incredibly dramatic. I have no idea if the area will be reopened for hiking anytime soon.

In the meantime though, here are a few more photos from the Station fire.

Anthony - Great photos! That smoke plume was pretty ridiculas. It really did look like a bomb had gone off.
