Georges Fire II, 2018

Fine art print on lustre archival paper, open edition, unsigned.

The Georges Fire burns near Mt Whitney Portal Road in the Eastern Sierras just Northwest of Lone Pine, CA. In this image the view is from the Manzanar internment camp where American citizens of Japanese heritage were forced to relocate during World War II. The Milky Way also rises in the southern sky to contract the blaze itself.

The fire was allegedly started by lightning after hundreds of ground strikes were reported in the area. The fire burned over 2,000+ acres.

The fuels in the area were extremely dry and the fire is well-established on the eastern facing slopes moving uphill in incredibly steep terrain. Take a moment to thank wildland firefighters who worked all night on the fire during initial attack to combat the blaze amidst a boatload of bugs like flying ants, mosquitos, and other creepy crawlies. 

This was the first fire I photographed in the Eastern Sierras and the stars were incredible.
