We've had rain. The winds are blowing in from a new direction. Santa Ana - the red wind, the devil's breath - is silent. For now, we can exhale. These iPhone pics taken today were shot on a walk less than 10 miles from where I live. In late October, 2003 as far as the eye could see was a raging inferno, the devastating Cedar Fire that torched 280,278 acres in Southern CA and took 15 lives. I moved here in 2006. In 2007, I held my breath as dense purplish smoke poured over the hills below us.
"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
Respect, total respect ...
