Butte Creek Canyon, CALIF. - Professional photographer Beiron Andersson has lived up the road from the Honey Run Covered Bridge for years, but he had never gotten around to taking a professional photo of the iconic landmark.

On the morning of November 8, 2018, he saw smoke from the Camp Fire in the distance.  A short time later, he realized that smoke, and flames, were getting dangerously close.

By the time he evacuated after 1:00pm, he wasn't sure if he would even be able to cross the short bridge over Honey Run Road, or if the iconic covered bridge just yards away would even be there.

Said Andersson, "Driving out with all the flames and all the propane tanks and with everything blowing up, I just knew, I felt that most likely this was going to take my last chance to photograph this bridge, so I'd better stop."

He dug into the pile of items he'd thrown into his car before evacuating, and found his camera.

He didn't have his tripod, so "I used this railing as my support to get a super clean, nice shot."

Andersson didn't print the photograph until the one-year mark of the Camp Fire.

Now, he may print and sell 100, all in custom sizes.  If so, he plans to number each one.
