Colorado Wildfires - Beauty from Destruction...

Along with everyone else, we have been watching and holding our breathes daily as wildfire season has sprung into action.  Colorado is once again enduring a hot, dry and dangerous summer with wildfires run ammok. 
  A new photographer to join the ranks has sent in some awesome pictures taken in Canon City, Colorado looking toward the huge Royal Gorge fire that continues to burn.  As a note, the 84 year old bridge over the Royal Gorge (Worlds record as the highest bridge in the world from 1929 -2001) is still standing although many of the wooden planks have been damaged by fire.
  Please welcome our newest amateur photographer who also used a special lense on a few of his pictures to get a unique and really cool affect.
