Fire Pictures

These images are provided by Jim Samuelson

I shot this from just below the Valley View casino off Lake Wholford Road of the Paradise fire while it was still burning.  It is 8 images stitched together and the entire field of view is burned. I live in Pauma Valley and my home was spared, although the fire came within a kilometer of it.    ----- Jim
