    • Hien, thank you.
      With the beauty comes the sadness of so many homes being burned by the Tubbs fire that swept through Sonoma County and Santa Rosa in October. Every home on this street burned to the foundation. Only some walls like this entryway remained. The clean up is in progress as foundations and 3″ of dirt are removed to rid lots of contaminates. It’s a slow process and it will be years of rebuilding. I’d photographed extensively in this area before the fire. This is my first time back to photograph.

  1. Beautiful photo of a very sad scene. Bit of deja vu out here as we had a scorcher with high, dry winds yesterday. The danger level was rated ‘Catastrophic’. Thankfully it is much cooler (T drop was ~ 40 F!) and more humid today.

    • The image does leaves one with that possibility. Unfortunately the color of the sunset is too close to the images taken of the real fire. This image may be disturbing for those who experienced the wild fires. I thought about that when I took this image.

  2. What a contrast between the sky and the remnants of the house. I feel guilty saying that the shot is beautiful! How can I say that when so much property was destroyed. All the best in 2018.

    • Patti, thank you for taking the time to comment.
      I agree that it is difficult to see the destruction and see beauty as well. I found it some what difficult to stand on the side walk waiting for the sky to change.
      I too hope your 2018 is a good and joyous one for you.
