The High Park Fire, as seen from Estes Park, CO. Smoke plume rises to 23,000'.

"The sun burnt every day. It burnt Time. The world rushed in a circle and turned on its axis and time was busy burning the years and the people anyway, without any help from him. So if he burnt things with the firemen and the sun burnt Time, that meant that everything burnt!"
- Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451, Part 3

“That's the good part of dying; when you've nothing to lose, you run any risk you want.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

I can relate to that - it's fire-season here.

I like the reference, but believe the composition may be lacking. The lone foreground element does put me in the picture some, and without it the image would be lacking further, but there is nothing to draw me into the image from the lone foreground element. I wish more foreground was included I do believe. I would like to see this same image in advanced editing too. I imagine the smoke would come out a bit more punchy.
