The Wild Fire from Lightner Creek in the outskirts of Durango, Colorado still remains at 20% contained as of July, 1st 2017. There isn’t visible smoke at this time from the other side of Durango. Still sending our message to all.
They love to call this the “One Million Dollar Highway” and wether you drive by night or day, I can tell you that the first time will give you some chills. The scenery is gorgeous and some drops are very impressive. Add rain/snow and I can say, you won’t forget it.
Nighttime hit Durango and the wild fire was still going. Managed to get some shots from Fort Lewis College, which is still a safe place to be. The town is safe, most of the fire is happening in the outskirts. For more information and updates about the fire, I suggest visiting the Durango Herald.
As of June 29th, 2017 at 1pm the fire is expected to grow. Air Tankers and Bull Dozers arriving from Denver are expected. Lightner Creek Fire is declared a disaster emergency. Fire is moving towards Perins Peak.

Can you see the difference between these nikon vs sigma lenses? Yes. Is it worth $11,000USD more? Mmmmm sure, because it shoots at f/2.8 and the other at f/6
The top Nikon glass is made for sports photographers who need the aperture and reliability. They keep working and won’t complaint. Not to say the Sigma doesn’t, but its not made to withstand the abuse like the Nikons. If it breaks, you can buy 10 more. But you will never be able to shoot at f/4 or f/2.8?
and here we have the Nikon 600mm f/4 FL VR
