Looking through my photo archives, I came across these photos of North Topsail Beach, where forest fires raged for weeks upon weeks and smoke and soot dimmed and tainted the air and scattered a light so that everything glowed with a dull, ethereal light.

This has been a year of weather extremes all over the place. I suppose the miracle is that the earth absorbs all of this change and goes on and on. May we all do the same.

  9. Very dramatic shots Sylvia. It is amazing how the earth can survive the traumas. Fire can be beneficial in nature but hard with people so nearby for cyclic fires to be anything but destructive.
