    Oy. Poor Yosemite. Probably a lot of disappointed visitors this summer too. Sigh...
    And it looks like the web cameras are down now -- they are showing images from last Saturday.

    Here is an update on the Telegraph fire from our local news. Not Good.

    For daily reports from our National Interagency Fire Center go here:

    And as for smoke, I photograph near fires here in Alaska just for that effect on the sun and light. It can make for some beautiful light if one is distant enough from the fire to not be in danger. Like this image I took a couple years ago of smoke and sun.

    The aerial tankers have been flying out of the Fresno Air Attack Base all day fairly regularly.
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Have my fingers crossed for lots of folks in the path of that fire.

    Two good sources of info for up to date status:

    I hoping for the best for my friends within the fires' reach. Nature will get over the scar, but the lives in harms way are precious.

    Do you mean millions of years ago?
