Glacier Point Yosemite Fire

A wide angle shot of the Yosemite wildfire that broke out on Sunday morning and burned throughout the night. The light from the moon, the fire and even the stars made this shot for me. Looking through the viewfinder the scene was surreal and epic at the same time. Destruction of some of the best and most popular trails in Yosemite. Clouds continued to move in and I saw lighting to the right out of frame. It did rain some and I am sure that helped suppress the fire that continued to smolder. Soon the glow of the flames turned to a smoky misty shroud around half dome. This is one of the more impressive shots I have gotten in a while and I came away with dozens that are equally impressive. It was hard to choose which ones.
