Sunday Skies

 

The rising heat and smoke from the Sitgraves / Complex fire

rise to an elevation where they combine with the

cool and moist monsoon atmosphere.

The result is a visual stunner in my mind.

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Amazing isn't it! It was a wildfire sparked by lightning, then brought under control, and managed. Here's more info...

Wonderfully dramatic Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Richard!
Looks like a thunderhead but it is not, I guess.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well - you are partially right... the fire was sparked by lightning during the monsoon season. So you do have a thunderhead above, that the smoke is rising to meet. Quite a spectacle!
It makes for some dramatic cloud formations by the look of it Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Quite spectacular!
It is a truly magnificent skyscape Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I had a hard time drawing my eyes away!
