Photograph by Catie Prechtel, National Geographic Your Shot
“As the smoke from the Oregon Gulch Fire began rolling into the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon, I decided to get a closer look at the enormous pyrocumulonimbus cloud that was rapidly filling the sky,” writes Catie Prechtel, a member of our Your Shot community. “There were so many forms within the smoke-tinted cloud that it was difficult to pick a single area to photograph, but what repeatedly caught my attention was this curling curtain of cloud that appeared to be releasing sheets of precipitation. Using my telephoto lens, I was able to capture both the looming shape of the cloud and its eerie glow.”
Prechtel’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot assignment Show Me Your Wilderness.
