As larger and larger wildfires seem to be the new normal it is important to be able to visualize the magnitude and power they have. This image captures the destructiveness of a 2017 California wildfire, with towering flames engulfing a house in the Napa wine region. The structure, totally consumed in flames, seems to be nothing more than a skeleton of its previous self. The contrast of the flame against the black sky and frame make a captivating image.
