Orman Yangını

Çok etkileyici bir fotoğraf. İlk defa Babe I’m on fire şarkısının klibinde görmüştüm. Geçen google images de gezerken denk geldi… Siteye koymadan edemedim. İlgilenenler içni ufak bi de açıklama yazısı koydum. Çevirmeye vakit olmadığı için ingilizce, kusuruma bakmayın lütfen.

John McColgan

Two deer take refuge in the Butterfoot river as there forest home burns.

John McColgan, a BLM firefighter, took photos on August 6th, 2000 while fighting fires in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana. McColgan says he “just happened to be in the right place at the right time” with his Kodak DC280 digital camera.

This photo originally came to people via e-mail, with numerous forwards making its origin highly difficult to trace. It bore only the following message:

“This awesome picture was taken in Bitteroot [sic] National Forest in Montana on August 6, 2000. The photographer, John McColgan, is a fire behavior analyst from Fairbanks, Alaska. He took the picture with a digital camera. Because he was working at the time he took the picture he cannot profit from it; however, we feel the picture is a once-in-a-lifetime shot and should be shared.”

It was subsequently popularized and published in various journals.
