Sedona Sunset

Back in May a large wildfire started near Payson, AZ.  Go here to see photos and read more about the fire.  At the time, I was working about 50 miles northwest of the fire but the smoke was easily observable.  The smoke created some nice opportunities for photography and the creosote in the area made for a nice foreground feature.

There were also some nice birds in the area, including the Black-throated Sparrow in the photo.  There was also a Peregrine Falcon, some Scott's Orioles, and many Gambel's Quail.
