Attracted by the big city lights

This was taken a few weeks ago, the clouds were low but it wasn't raining for a change. It's a view towards Hilo from my home's upper lanai taken at night. It looks as though there's a big fire burning somewhere beyond the garden's trees but it's simply the lights of Hilo reflecting off the clouds. Yes, I had nothing better to do that night and no, Hilo isn't a big city...

Wow, I would not believe these were city lights. It truly looks like the forest is on fire.;)

Kim - thanks for stopping by! I was just goofing around with the camera but I really liked the forest-fire effect!

Protege - Hilo is officially a city I believe, but it's pretty small! On occasions, though, the lights look quite spectacular from here. There are no street lights here so any light from elsewhere shows up.
