I took this photo on my way home from work. There are several forest fires burning around my home. This one is in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains. These fires have been burning for several days, and at times the smoke is pretty thick. At the moment there is no end in sight for the fires, not until we get some rain. The best us puny humans can do is struggle to keep the fiery wrath of nature somewhat contained until the water falls.
