There are at least 6 wildfires currently burning in the state of Colorado and the Waldo Canyon Fire is abutting Colorado Springs. One of the only good things about this fire is that it presents many photo opportunities. In this image there are no clouds, just smoke from the fire. Once the sun had dipped below the foothills of the Front Range the illumination of the smoke plume intensified the colors of the sunset.
