17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Tree Burst

Northern AZ has seen it's share of wildfires. We nearly lost our home to one just last year. While we were lucky and were spared, nearly 50 people lost structures in our community. During a prescribed burn in the National Forest to deter future such devastating wildfires, I went out to see if I could capture a story of the renewal, re-birth and survival.
