The sky is lit with fire and crafty Blogger links

This is a photo I took driving north on the 5 freeway Thursday night just when the fire started. I know it's not a great shot but I was driving at the time and just holding the camera up and shooting. It's against the law to talk on your cell phone but no one said anything about taking pictures of the mountainside burning. A day photo of the same mountain is posted here.
