This iReport is part of an assignment:
Colorado and Utah wildfires
Security on June 26th
Safe and sound on a western ridge in their aptly named township, the people of Security have a unique view of the fire and it's toxic exhaust. As the heat rises, so too does the evidence of a terrible disaster, ravaging homes and lives only miles away.
Strange how things can seem so beautiful from afar. It leaves a sick feeling in my stomach knowing the truth, imagining the fear and emptiness of the ones who have lost everything to this natural machine, while photographing from a quiet, safe, secure distance.
