Incendio Forestal en Cubo de Benavente

This forest fire in Cubo de Benavente (Zamora) razed approximately 825 hectares of forest area, of which 200 are of repopulation pine
This was taken just from the road, on our way home coming from Astorga. Fortunately there was no human loss or house damage though the damage to the forest was important

1/200s f/4.9 at 18.6mm iso80 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto
