Durand mon séjour a mon camp de pêche, il y a eu beaucoup de chaleur et de soleil,puis il y a eu du tonnere et des éclairs sans avoir de pluie.Cela a causé au dessus de 100 feu de forêt et le plus gros se trouvait tout pres de mon lac et de mon camp au bout de 2 jours le feu couvrait 4 kilomêtres de large par 8 kilomêtres de profondeur et il brûle encore après 10jours.

Je plains le feu dans votre emplacement. Comme vous savez que nous avons un aussi. Aujourd'hui le feu a « sauté » une ligne de feu. Nous espérons qu'il ne va pas aussi loin. Surgir PS Grand sur la photo d'endroit et éditant. ..You pourrait considérer ajoutant votre nom à ma notification dans le forum de Tahoe de Lac,
donc vous pouvez ajouter votre feu là-bas aussi et il fera une grandiose exposition pour les gens pour lire.

My best regards
Saeed

magnifique vue jeanpaul
quelle chance d'avoir de la chaleur, je neparle pas du feu bien sur, car c'est toujours un désatre, pour ce qui est de la chaleur, nous sommes en été ici et il fait froid, il y a beaucoup de vent, de la pluie, bref nous n'avons plus de saison, très très belle vue, de très belles couleurs,
un grand bravo
Nad

Bonjour JeanPaul,
C'est une image étonnante par ses couleurs, un peu triste aussi lorsqu'on pense à tous ces feux de forêts qui détruisent un si grand capital de nature. Merveilleux coin de la Terre que tu nous montres ici. Belle "composition" aussi.
Merci et meilleures saulations

Hola amigo,
precioso paisaje,
bello bg,
buen pov y dof.
saludos Jeanpaul

Hello JP,
I will think this is a scary sight in the middle of the wilderness!
Amazing to see how the fire reflects off the clouds, creating a very unpleasant atmosphere...
By the way... The image is very well composed!
Greetings,
Pablo -

Hi,
Lovely shot with fantastic colors, pov and composition.
Well done!
Regards,
Iulian

Bonjour jean-paul !
Cette image semble sortie tout droit d'un conte de fées ! elle est merveilleuse ! La composition, le POV et surtout les couleurs sont excellents. Je suis cependant navrée d'apprendre que ce terrible feu dévaste la forêt.
Valerie.

Hello JeanPaul,
Wonderful capture of this landscape in beautiful light. Excellent POV - I love the tall pine trees on the right contrasting with the small ones on the left. The depth of focus is superb too. I like the smooth water and the threatening smoke covering the sky.
It must have been rather frightening though!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Magnifiques couleurs qui se reflètent dans l'eau, c'est superbe.
Bravo
Marie

Salut JP,
I hope all will be well with you and your camp. May the fire be controlled soon at leave flora and founa in good condition.
You did manage to make the best of it and create this wonderful photo. The sun gave the smoke a kind of romantic look.
TFS,
Niek

J.P.,
This is devastating; however, it has made a great image.
Highly IMPRESSIVE.
The reflection of that fire via the clouds is frightening.
Otherwise, this is a MAGNIFICIENT register.
Mario with greetings from Calgary.

Ah non Jean-Paul,
Qu'elle horreur... J'ai entendu parler de ces nombreux feux de forêt mais je ne savais pas que ça se passait dans ton coin. J'espère que la situation va se régler le plus tôt possible et sans dégâts trop graves. Ça me crève le coeur à chaque été de voir ça... Je dois dire toutefois que cette photo est d'une beauté presque irréelle... C'est vraiment très beau avec des couleurs hallucinantes mais bon, c'est un événement profondémment triste... Tiens-moi au courant,
Claudine

Bonjour Jeanpaul!
Very nice and romantic view. Nice composition. Beautiful colours. I like the sky.
I am greeting - Roma

Nature in its fine form.
I like the deep pink colour of clouds.
The point of view is excellent using the forefront trees at that level.
Beautiful and peaceful image.

Hi Jeanpaul,

A wonderful landscape showing the fire and smoke in the sky. Lovely scene with the trees, mountains and water. I have had one close to me and know how unsettling it is.

Out of smiles - be back.

Jane

Hola Jean, bonita composición con unos tonos salmones estupendos. Veo que vives en una zona encantadora. Muchgas gracias por tu comentario. Au revoire: J. Ignasi

Bonjour Jeanpaul,
The fire is not good, but it gives a wonderful colour to the sky.
Very good composition with the trees in the fg and the moutains and the sky in the bg.
Well seen and I hope you and your family were ok in the camp.

Hi Jean-Paul.
You've captured this dramatic scene not documentaristic but very artistic.Beautiful composition with position high trees in right part in foreground.Impressive coloured clouds on sky with reflexion on water and very good details on vegetation in foreground.Well done.
TFS,with greeting Milos.

Salut Jeanpaul,
quel dommage de voire brûler les arbres, même si dans une belle photo comme celui-ci; les couleurs sont magnifiques, aussi que le réflexe dans le lac, mais quelle tristesse pour le bois et les animaux...J'éspère qu'il soit terminé!
Bonne dimanche mon ami,
Violetta

Hi Jeanpaul, this landscape has magnificent colour, helped by the fire on the horizon. Very well composed and nice and clear with good sharpnes and focus. Very creative shot also.

Your story is dramatic but shot is superb. You managed to reflect the beauty of the fire and place perfectly at highest range. POV, pictured scene, rich colour palette, great DOF and sharpness of all image are simply great. Bravo an best wishes.

Hi JeanPaul

Oh calamity. I sincerely hope your corner of paradise did not experience too much long term or permanent damage. Many times, depending on the amount of undergrowth and fuel material, such bush fires looks far more devastating than what it really are. If the fire past through a specific area fast enough it tends only to burn superficially and nature can recover rather speedily. However, if the fire moves slow due to an abundance of fuel material then it tends to consume or destroy much of the vegetation and the recovery process may take years.

This shot of yours although artistically present also has a "photo journalism" quality. Fortunately we do not see the flames of destruction, but only the tell-tale smoke signal. The composition was nicely done well defined fore- and mid-ground zones and the trees on the right to frame the shot. The colours are very natural, the details are sharp, and the exposure was well controlled.

Good work MF and TFS.
Regards
Loot

Allo Jean-Paul,
Ta photo démontre très bien l'urgence de la situation, toutefois ça donne une photo saisissante.
J'aime beaucoup les éléments de la forêt que tu as choisis dans ta composition.
Bravo.

Bonjour Jeanpaul!
It's a sad event of an ignited forest. They say that fires are sometimes renovating the forest, but who knows...
Anyway, a very interesting and moving capture.
Greetings,
Anton

Hello Jeanpaul,
This is a beautifully composed shot! The tall tree immediately leads the eye to the trauma in the sky! I also like the the hint of red in the f/g!
kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi friend .... a nice landscape with great colours .... nice perspective and details! Take care Ana:)

Belle photo de votre lac avec ses lueur du feu a l' arrière, votre pays me faisait rèver et je l' ai visité un peu l' année passée,mais 15 jours et organisé, cela est trop court pour bien voire ces endroit comme lacs,forets etc,on va trop voire les villes,manque de temps pour les grands espaces.je l' aime encore plus et depuis que je vois vos photos,j' ai encore plus envie d' y revenir.superbe photos pour un superbe pays. Amitiés Thomas

Things are pretty dry out west and fire bans are on everywhere. This is a great capture, the colors in the sky look like a fine sunset, if it were not for the note....
Cheers
Otto

Hi Jean Paul,
very nice landscape,
very nice photo,
Zorica

Un incendie qui joue au coucher de soleil. Belle image, Jeanpaul, par sa composition et ses couleurs saturées. Excellent détails dans l'avant-plan qui tranche nettement sur le ciel. Tu as eu chaud, je crois!

Bonjour Jeanpaul,
A beautiful imag with great colors. the foreground lakeside and trees is absolutely gorgeous, you have positioned the treeline on the right to hold the viewers eye to the middle of the scene and the smoke from the forest fire, an excellent choice to not allow one's eye to wander off the page.
A beuty of an image, well done...
Steve
