Photos of the year: Striking images of life in La Plata County in 2018

Photographing a fire that burns for more than two months can be difficult, but Durango Herald Photography Editor Jerry McBride made outstanding photos throughout the 416 Fire. This is one of his favorites because it illustrates the pure skill of air-tanker pilots. “What I like about this one is it shows the skill that these pilots have to have, how dangerous it is. This plane was probably 50 feet above ground at the very tip of Hermosa Cliff, and it blew me away how close he came down into that,” he said.
