Clouds

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.

Such are the words that occur to me as I watch tens of thousands of acres of beautiful pine forest go up in smoke.   The fire is all-powerful, selfish, and indifferent, like all the forces of nature. Yet I can’t help but notice its terrible beauty.  Some parts of the cloud are delicate and indistinct; others stark and crisp.  Whatever it is, it is something I will never forget.

Here are various images of the enormous  cloud of steam, tiny particles, and CO2 that used to be forest.  My thoughts are with all of those who are affected by this fire.
