Bastrop - A Smoky Dawn: Aerial photography

Yesterday I flew over Bastrop with my family to capture images of the smoke and burnout from the wild fire. We flew early, before air traffic was closed for fire fighting, and the smoke settled over the woods looked surreal. The Bastrop school district is reopening today after being closed since the fire broke out over the Labor Day weekend.

We flew mostly over the area of Bastrop State Park, where thick wooded patches live side by side with burnt out areas charred by the fire. It was a humbling sight to see.

My album of images is here: Bastrop Wildfire (uses Flash)
