If it was a prescribed burn, that last shot really tells the whole story. Not really death, but it does get rid of the underbrush and allow new growth. Great for those woodland critters. ;) :D Now, if it was a full-out forest fire, that's another story.
Wonderful series of shots Dave and thank you for sharing them.

Thanks again Robert.
It was a fair sized fire, Approx. 6000 acers, some of which was in the Jasper National park. You can still see smoke rising in the park. They don't care if it burns there for the same reasons you mentioned. But if the wind changes and pushes it out of the park boundrys again, they will fight it.

Great shots there Dave, I particularly like No3, very poignant.
