Incredible Photos of the San Clarita Valley Wildfire

A few weeks ago in the Sand Canyon/San Clarita Valley, south of Los Angeles, a wildfire pretty much gutted the valley — homes destroyed, property, vehicles, just pure havoc.

This was quite an unfortunate fire; there are a very intriguing set of photographs of this fire, shot by David McNew of Getty Images.  I think he really captured the heat and misery of this fire, in an incredibly amber and dark series of photographs.  Check them out below.
