Rain made the vegetation thick along time ago which made fuel for the fire and then it dried out with the drought and caused the fires. When rain comes again vegetation will start to grow again and build up again.
@eu_hal9000 @ThatsSoBrandon 70 mm lens was used for this wide view over SW Louisiana #fromspace. Altitude: 250 miles (400 km).
We need t/Heavenly sprinkler systems 2help put the #TXWildfire out! May God protects t/Firemen there!
Estão acontecendo incêndios no Texas a alguns dias... =/ E não vi isso na tv. =S
@ThatsSoBrandon ISS has an orbit between 171 and 286 miles. That effect depends on lenses used normally 800mm or higher
It seems like you're so much closer to the surface of Earth than I thought #fromspace. So amazing.
Great shot. Perfectly visible from bottom : White lake, Grand lake,Calcasieu lake and Sabine lake
Great pic, so clear, wildfires rendered even more extraordinary phenomenon when seen #fromspace.
They¨re really huge to see that plume #FromSpace, hope people live near the zone is safe in another place. tks 4 sharing!
