Kearny Brush Fire Sunset

June 25, 2015



Due to growth spurts recently, I decided to make some posts about photos I’ve recently taken!

On June 17, 2015 a brush fire started near Kearny, Arizona. It was a very serious fire because it was very close to the town of Kearny and threatened (And burned a few) buildings and threatened the town. Fortunately, the fire remained in the river bed near the town and didn’t change direction. As of June 21, it the fire was 75% contained. (I have yet to hear anything more about the fire since then)

I do not live in or near Kearny, but where I do live I could see the smoke from the fire start and, while the fire was not contained, I could smell the smoke from the mesquite trees that burned. (It smelled like I was standing next to a smoker filled with mesquite wood)

Because of all the smoke in the air, the sunset on June 17 was really pretty. After seeing how the sunset looked, I ran outside and took photos. This was the first time I took photos outside in two months and, to my surprise, I was out of practice. I did get several photos that turned out nicely and decided to post them.

None of the photos are of the fire or the smoke bellowing from the fire. Just the sunset and desert.

All the photos in this post are from Flickr. Clicking on the photos will take you to the Flickr page of the photo.

Enjoy!
