Power of Nature Winner: Wildfire

(David Bahr)
“This wildfire was the most destructive in Colorado history. Separated from the fire by a deep mountain canyon, my own home was spared. From my vantage point, I watched as the overwhelmed firefighters raced to avoid the wall of flames. At night, the fire created an eerie red glow akin to a volcano spouting from the forest floor—as captured in this photograph.” - Photographer David Bahr
