Night of Fire at Big Sur

Posted by Monterey John (Hollister, CA, United States) on 6 July 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I waited for the sun to go down knowing the scene at Big Sur would be dramatic. It was. Dramatic and sad.

I have put up a Flash display which I hope many will take a look at here http://montereyjohn.com/Big_Sur_Basin_Fire/index.html
