Beautiful Renewal-A Forest Recovers From A Historic Fire
In 2009 the Station Fire burned through these canyons. Four years later we can still clearly see the result. To get this shot I laid myself out among the thorns and got that camera right down onto the dirt. There was a lot of glare so I put in just a bit of fill flash to reduce shadow. In the distance you can see a mountain still largely blackened. Stands of dead trees like the one you see behind our sapling is a typical example of what you see by the countless thousands.
But then you look at your feet and start to see the new pines & more coming up just like this little guy. The forest will be back, and we will be there the show you.
