Half Dome ~ Full Firestorm

I find this Yosemite National Park webcam image sequence of the Meadow Fire rather fascinating as it captures the big blow-up earlier this month on September 7, 2014, as a wind event blew through the park and whipped up a smoldering lightening-started fire which initially innocuously began on July 19, 2014. For nearly two months it had been left alone to naturally clean the understory as fire has done there for eons during interglacial periods like now. Big thanks goes to my sister by another mother, Lin Kerns who compiled this sequence for me to share here.
