13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Force of Fire

Prescribed burns are done to breath life into the forest and rejuvenate it. This looks like a charred mess now but the regeneation that will occurr will bring new life to the area. The charred remains of the trees and singed evergreens created some interesting textures and colors and the singed evergreens in the background looked like they are still flickering with fire.
