California's wildfires in time lapse

As wildfires lick the hills of California, a couple different photographers have captured time lapse footage of the fires spread. The New York Times linked to the first video below which recorded the fires at sunset from LA’s Mulhulland Drive this past Saturday. Set to music by Brian Eno, the second video is a more poetic commentary on the mesmerizing beauty of these fires–too bad humans and our “development” get in the way of Mother Nature!
