Fort Collins, Colorado. June 2012
In June 2012, numerous fires were burning across parts of Colorado. I was able to catch one of them at sunset, which made for an incredible spectacle in the sky above the mountains.
Smoky skies above the Rockies.
The plume of smoke blots out the sun, west of Fort Collins, Colorado.
Another part of the smoke plume billowing up.
Crepuscular rays of light filter through the smoke.
The U.S. military guards a checkpoint. This is as close as I am able to get.
Fire in the sky - The glow from the forest fire illuminates the underside of the clouds.
