Controlled Forest Fires

Prescribed fires are a necessary part of a healthy forest. Forest thinning and controlled burns help prevent catastrophic wild fires. From a distance, the smoke from these fires can be alarming and often annoying. But up close, the flames and smoke mingle to create a beautiful scene. Throw in some moonlight and a 20 second exposure, and this is the result.  Photo: IDEA Lab
