Fire #2

This is from the wildfires that burned much of Malibu a while back.  When I went to photograph it, the fires were mostly out but things were still smoking.  I remember the shock on peoples’ faces, and the stories of a raging wall of fire coming for them in the night, faster than someone sprinting.  The firemen had saved most of the houses, but they were on an island in the middle of a wasteland of scorched earth.  And some houses they couldn’t save.

There’s still beauty to be found here, though, even in the scorched earth.
