On our drive to Omak yesterday, we drove by Grand Coulee where a brush fire was covering quite a large area.I took a few drive-by shots and processed three to post: one here and two on my back-up blog: Night Shades if you are interested.

A terrible sight!

It almost makes my heart ache...just hate seeing this. But would love to see it in other conditions.

Here we have controlled fires on the heather moor, this certainly looks out of control. Very nice composition

It is natures way. The other shots are equally worth seeing. Nice.

Wow.... quel point de vue. Beau traitement)

Quelle vue avec la route qui fait sa courbe, la rivière et cette roche sueprbe.

While it saddens me to see so much back country burn I realize it's part of a natural cycle. If anything man has made it worst by interrupting/stopping the small burns allowing brush and fuel to build up resulting in even larger burns. Then man has also unwisely build in many of these area's. Interesting capture...Don.

i hate to see/hear about these...

Now I don't know about this one, the bush fires are not necessarily a bad thing, at least this is what I saw on DIscovery. These fires allow the forest to sort of refresh itself.

Good documentary of this scary situation.

How sad Don. It seems to be a year for them. There is a terrible one burning on the island of La Gomera where we holidayed earlier this year. It is destroying a unique rainforest of giant heath and laurel trees there. Apparently started by a known arsonist, I fail to grasp what is going on in these peoples brains

Nice composition, Don.

An interesting PoV

Looks like a biggie - the other shots are good as well. Dramatically changing people's lives much of the time.

Great capture of the bush fire. Beautiful view and excellent composition. Great shot. :)
17 Aug 2012 5:06pm
Superb documentary image Don
17 Aug 2012 5:54pm
Was this a controlled burn Don or just a natural flair up that got out of hand? ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: I didn't hear the cause. Many are causrd by lightning strikes. This area has no roads and practically no people. It's an Indian Reservation.
very nice & so beautiful!

Obviating the sad part of this photo, it's a magnificent landscape ... Nice shot of this interesting scene !!!
17 Aug 2012 7:44pm
Wow. Amazing how much damage is created. You can just see all the haze and smoke. Your other pictures were very dramatic.
17 Aug 2012 7:49pm
I think the first shot on the other blog is more dramatic. Looks a little scary there.
17 Aug 2012 8:08pm
I wondered why the color int his shot looked kind of faded, then read about the fire. Good capture. I am going now to look at the other two.

A great image of this moving fire ... the smoke seems alive with action. The other two shots are good too, Don.
17 Aug 2012 9:49pm
so sorry to hear about all of the fires in eastern washington. stay safe
17 Aug 2012 11:31pm
Neat shot Don.
18 Aug 2012 1:02am
A fine shot. I hate to see these fires although I know some are actually helpful to trees and other plants.
18 Aug 2012 2:31am
Lovely atmosphere. I like soft tones of this landscape
18 Aug 2012 3:16am
man, that looks bad.. nice piece of reportage though..
18 Aug 2012 8:28pm
the background looks like it was painted like in cheap movies
(unfortunately it's real though)
21 Aug 2012 2:02pm
So sad, I hate fires. Hopefully, they will control it quickly.
