• The effects of a wildfire most likely caused by an illegal campfire that was poorly extinguished. These photographs are from our drive back to Carmel, near the Highway 1 which I just see now in the news is closed due to the Soberanes Fire which has been raging for about 2 weeks now. It had just started when we visited Big Sur for my birthday. Just think of the incredible loss of habitat for wildlife, the many people who lost their homes to the fires the irreplaceable damages caused. • Have you ever seen the sun look so red (as in the last picture) ? • • Sorry that I have been so uninspired lately to write properly, to add words to my experiences here in California. Sometimes it is easier to just observe and read.. I realise that this is really poor performance. • •
When we left Carmel, on July 26th, a week ago the wildfire was 3 days old and 5% under control. Just imagine living with this constant danger of fire! Hang in here to see a couple of my photographs from the day, as soon as I decide which ones to share..
