    You’ve probably heard by now about the devastating wildfires occurring in Northern and Southern California. I happen to work just a few miles from the Anaheim Hills fire, which affected thousands of acres in the general Disneyland area.

    Here are a handful of photos I shot on Monday, the first 3 using an iPhone (“the camera I had with me”) and the last using a Nikon Coolpix (“a slightly better camera I had access to”), all post-processed slightly with a suitable ominous HDR effect.

    The fires are dreadful. I hope they don't impact you further. It seems incredible that so large an inhabited area can be affected.

    Thanks Pete. These photos were on Monday; by Tuesday there was only a faint haze. It was hard to tell anything was going on.

    BTW, I see I mistitled this thread and can't edit it, it should obviously be "wildfires". I don't think it was auto-correct; I was hearing Tom Petty's Wildflowers in my head...
