The end of a perfect summer day finds the sun sinking into the Pacific Ocean west of Newport Beach, CA on Sunday August 19, 2007. Smoke from the massive Zaca fire--a 240,000 acre wildfire that burned for more than two months north of Santa Barbara in July and August--adds to the red sky above the setting sun.
