A Burning View

Greetings. The fires are still burning throughout Southern California, leaving destruction in their wake. This shot, taken an hour or so ago, is looking north at the Simi Valley fire across the San Fernando Valley. The fire has been moving south and has now reached the northern edge of the San Fernando Valley itself. I took this photo from the Topanga Canyon summit, but the fire itself is actually only a few miles away from me right now. The winds have died down considerably -- this may be a significant break.

As you can see, everything in L.A. is a tourist attraction.
