The image was taken Sept. 15 at Forebay Lake in Pollock Pines, CA. Helicopters have been collecting water from there to fight the wildfire nearby. The photographer's parents live less than a quarter mile from the lake. The photographer has stayed at his parent's house to watch the fire over the past couple days.
