SkyWatch Friday / Smokey Sunrise From Yukaipa and Oak Glen Fires
I shot these photographs over a period of about 10 - 12 minutes beginning at 6:50 a.m. on Tuesday morning. This fire is to the east of us by about 40 miles. The color changed dramatically over the short amount of time. I shot to the northeast to the southeast to get as much variance as possible. I am pleased to say that these fires (Yukaipa and Oak Glen) are reaching 95% containment now.
I put sunset skies on "Scenic Sunday" which showed the smokey sunset to the west of us by about 30-40 miles. We have been surrounded!
