I decided to take some pictures of the wildfires that are in the San Gabriel Mountains at the moment. I was hoping to get better pictures, but these will suffice. The wildfires are currently threatening the communication towers as well as a historical observatory on top of Mount Wilson. Hopefully they will soon be under control! The other night my husband and I walked down our street and we could see flames throughout the mountain ridges. I didn't have my camera, but if we go back out tonight perhaps I can capture some images. For more information about the current wildfires in LA check out the LA TIMES. For a map of the area including where the fire is and where it is heading please click HERE. We are in Pasadena, which is close by, but the fire seems to be heading in the other direction towards Acton. It is pretty scary! For a very cool time lapse of the fire done by anosmicovni check out the video below. I only hope to one day be able to capture something like that. It is amazing! He also has some amazing images on his flickr page of the fire. MUCH better than the ones I have here. I will keep trying though!
I also wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow I am starting my internship in psychology so I will have less time to take pictures and post them on my blog. Although I am excited to start my internship I am sad about having less time for photography! I will still do my best to take pictures as well as peruse all the wonderful photography blogs I have come across.
