Wildfire ruins are just devastating to witness. The beauty that can be found in a charred landscape is quickly lost when the realization hits you that so much life has been lost. Wildfires destroy amazingly beautiful and delicate ecosystems. That loss of life can be prevented if the proper steps are taken by US. Please do your best to prevent starting an unintentional fire EVERY DRY SEASON. For more information check out Smokey Bear’s site.

For this image I kept my shutter open until I saw a flash then I immediately closed it. This was the result.
Happy days! Bring on the warm weather and green plants.
This blue gem is located in south-central Oregon. The incredible blue color comes from it’s nearly pure water absorbing every other wavelength of light. And although it may look like a meteor crater it’s actually a collapsed volcano called a caldera, that has since filled with precipitation. 💚Oregon!
