In Arizona there were several wildfires this Spring. Near Sedona, where I live, the Rafael Wildfire threatened several communities and moved quickly, due to the severe drought conditions. One afternoon, I decided to take a photo of clouds and smoke from the fire. As I was taking the shot, a falcon flew out of the clouds, into my picture. In some cultures, a bird flying in clouds is a good omen, signifying hope, thus the title of the picture " A sign of Hope".
