1126 - "Hot Spot"

Here's another photograph I took of the Pemberton fire.
Destroying a large chunk of my credibility as a photographer, I did fake a few things in this photo to make it read as more dramatic.  The original picture did have an orange sun, chocoloate-coloured clouds, and the dead trees in the foreground.  
I enlarged the sun, added some heat shimmer, and drew in the burning embers by hand.  Maybe the two trees died of fire, more likely they died of disease.  I wasn't particularly interested in getting closer to the Pemberton fire than I already was, so I figured I'd fudge the picture with a little creative post-production.
