An Awesome Night Sky!

The night of the 4th of July was a beautiful night. When we got home about 10:30 p.m. the sky was lit up by fireworks, a beautiful almost full moon, and forest fires. Yes, forest fires. I know that sounds wrong to say a forest fire looks cool, but being close enough you can see the flames is a pretty awesome sight.
I am not a great night photographer so the actual night was much prettier than my pictures. The fires are on the mountain across the valley, they look closer than they actually are. During the day you can see them a bit, but at night you can clearly see the fire line. It is pretty cool.


  1. That fire looks close and it seems bright. No fires here. Hope it stays that way. K.

  2. There have been a couple of close fires here in the south end, and the flames are fascinating. I'm glad we had a bit of rain, 103 is just too damn hot. ...j

  3. Hey!
    where are the 4th pics?
