I am not much of a landscape photographer—lack of interest being one reason and negligible skill the other. The Featured Image won’t win awards, therefore, but it does capture what many Californians fear most: wildfires.
The burned out trees in the foreground are inside Cuyamaca Rancho State Park, where I have been to once—Nov. 28, 2008. The scorching may be from wildfires that raged across San Diego County about a year earlier. I don’t know, just guessing.
Photo vitals, aperture manually set: f/8, ISO 200, 1/250 sec, 24mm; 11:30 a.m. PST. I used Nikon D90.
