Time-Lapse Video of Colorado Springs's Waldo Canyon Fire

Photographer Steve Moraco, using time-lapse photography over five days from June 23 through June 28, 2012, created the following video of the Waldo Canyon fire that killed two and destroyed more than 340 homes in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

To give you some sense of the scale of the smoke and fire, the peaks visible in most of the video rise some 3,000 to 3,500 feet above Colorado Springs’s 6,000-foot elevation, and the Air Force Academy’s Cadet Chapel—visible just to the right of center near the bottom—is 150 feet high.

You can view the video in full-screen high-definition video here.
