These are also from the night the fire started from Clay Jackson under Bixby looking up at the ridge with the glass house. They are gorgeous!
This first photo is from the night the fire started. This is from Green Ridge on Palo Colorado rd looking west, towards where the first started. This was taken at 8:44pm

I was too tired Friday to ge to it, and Saturday it got buried in my inbox, but it is such a good dramatic photo, I want to give everyone the chance to see it.
These first photos are by Mike Doig. He added short descriptions to some of them with which I will caption the photos.

A lot less fire action at noon than at dawn. With all of the air support and hand crews it seems like this eastern ridge isn’t too far from being contained.
Many a pink strip on the hillside!
We don’t have a view further down the Rocky Creek drainage, but did see the planes take quite a few low passes of retardant that way
