Burn by Edie Howe-Byrne of

Today’s Photo of the Day is one of a collection that Edie took the other night of the controlled burn taking place in Yosemite Valley just west of El Capitan.

Beautiful stuff, Edie. Be sure to check out the whole collection on Flickr and then head over to Edie’s site

    The fires were actually burning on the north side of the river, but seen from this perspective, they appear to be on the far side.
