I encountered this image on Twitter tweeted by the San Luis Obispo FD. Without dispute in my mind, the photographer of it shot the best image of today's 3,000-acre Alamo Fire blow-up east of Santa Maria, CA. It was captured from an aircraft I presume. The perspective is looking southward with the Santa Maria Valley in the background and Twitchell Reservoir to the immediate right of the base of the fire. My images of this fire taken today can be viewed HERE.
