Fire Demon by PopeFucker Fire Demon by PopeFucker
I took this picture at a wildfire in Vail, OR in August of 2007. My engine boss and I walked up the hill to greet the fire as it crept down toward the farmer's corral that our engine was assigned to protect. We were feeling the heat as this large juniper tree torched at the bottom of the draw. We stood less than 100 feet downhill when I snapped this picture. The flames were at least 80 feet high. As soon as I took the pic, I saw on my little screen this horned beast of the Nagual realm. His hand is outstretched toward me. He has the head of an elk, and it looks like he has some kind of satchel over his shoulder. I haven't ever seen a figure in fire as clear as in this photo, and it hasn't been edited in any way.

This is my photo. Its real, and I have video to prove it. The photo is not a screenshot from the video, but was taken just seconds after I stopped filming.

I somewhat doubt that this is real. It is possible to view different things out of ordinary scenery...but for it to be that pristine, I'm not sure that's real. Plus, I do not know if this is just how smoke works or not, but at the top left of the tree, where smoke is coming out, that smoke doesn't look natural, like it's be stretched and pulled upwards, not pluming on its own. All in all it's a great picture, and I believe in the things we can see...but like most pictures online, credibility has to be taken into account, so I feel this warrants a Neutral status.
