Baseball game played amid menacing backdrop of Black Forest fire (pic)


In a troubling symbol of how life goes on despite the most terrible of situations, a photo of a high school baseball game played at Pine Creek High School, nearby the massive and destructive Black Forest fire that continues to rage that has destroyed hundreds of homes in its path and claimed the lives of at least two victims, reveals in awe-inspiring imagery the conditions under which the game was played.

The breathtaking photo, taken by Peter McAvoy and uploaded to his Twitter account on Thursday (larger photo here) captures he menacing backdrop of smoke billowing up into the sky behind the ball field.

Thoughts and sympathies to all those who have been affected by this horrible natural disaster.
