Doce Fire update

Smoke from the Doce Pit Fire is not yet at levels in populated areas that might cause harm currently. As long as you can still see things that are 5 to 10 miles away you can be reasonably sure you won't have a medical emergency caused by smoke inhalation. Conditions are being monitored and communities will be alerted as needed.

At night the falling air temperatures tend to cause smoke to move to lower elevations. Communities near the fire might be affected by poor air quality and residents are advised to stay tuned to radios and scanners for alerts. Residents can help their community by checking on neighbors, especially if they live alone, are elderly, or have heart or lung disease.

@ Doug Von Gausig & David Perrell
I appreciated a better look at an exceptional photo. But you guys shouldn't give me an excuse to think, "Oh if only I had better equipment, I'd have done just as well with the scarlet disc hanging over the Black Hills."

Did anyone get a good version of the view from the corner of 89A and Main? It looked like Sol had just collapsed into a red dwarf.

Thanks Dave,

The shot was taken at 6:40 pm in Clarkdale, using a Canon 5dMkII, 24-105L lens at 24mm, 1/500 sec at f14, and processed for levels in Adobe Camera RAW and Photoshop CS6. It's available at full-resolution on my site at:

That's an impressively dramatic photo by Doug Von Gausig. I was disappointed there wasn't a link to a larger version with details.
