Photo Editor’s Note: The photo above, provided courtesy of our friends at Getty, is so spectacularly good that it really deserves special attention. In the photo, a group of big mountain firefighters are seen heading into battle, with little more than shovels and chainsaws to try to at first slow, then control, the wildfires that are raging in the American West. Expect this one to be up for a Pulitzer. Very well done Ms. Helen Richardson. Very well done. Thank you for sharing.
