Beauty Amidst Destruction

This is happening outside right now.
A local fire and the distant sun are coming together for this show.

Don't take a photo like this and stare too long into the lens. I'm still having trouble seeing properly!

Edit: I've since learned how many people are affected by this fire. Our prayers are with them as they evacuate and await word on their belongings - as well as with the firefighters doing such a great service for us all.

Update: It's 4:00 am and San Diego is continuing to burn. It's far worse than I first realized when I shot the glow of the sun. Just so everyone knows, we're okay and housed for the time being, but evacuations are occurring at a pace faster than anything I can remember in my lifetime. If any of you need it, please let me know how we can help.

Here're images taken just moments ago - from the exact same spot...

Just checking out your blog and found these shots...seems so long ago that San Diego was turned upside down because of the fires and your blog is a reminder of how lucky we are! I have many clients that have called asking about replacing their photos lost in the fires and it reinforces how important a photographers role in life is! great images!
