"When fire is cried and danger is neigh,
"God and the firemen" is the people's cry;
But when 'tis out and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the firemen slighted."
~Author unknown, from The Fireman's Journal,Oct 1879

We have so many fires in Colorado, I've lost count. We need rain, but lightning strikes are our enemy. This one isn't far from my home. They're just letting it burn because it's too difficult to get to, resources are being used elsewhere, and there are not any structures near by.
such a dramatic image

Great capture! We have a lot of forest fires around here right now too. Some People about an hour north of us had to be evacuated

Hope and pray that you and yours are okay. Fires UN-nerve me to my core.

There are so many scary fires right now - such a year of extremes with the weather.
