Caption: Forest fire engulfing the crowns (top branches) of coniferous trees. This is known as crowning-out. A crown fire spreads through the forest canopy faster than flames on the ground level. Crown fire experiments are frequently conducted to model their behaviour. Photographed in a semi-arid region of southwest British Columbia, Canada.
