smoke billows up behind mackenzie river and first security bank from a natural gas explosion at boodles restaurant

Smoke from #bozexplod at night

Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

A night shot of the Boodles Explosion. I took this photograph from the Police Line that curtained off two blocks in any direction of the explosion in between South Black Avenue and South Bozeman Avenue, just behind First Security Bank and Mackenzie River Pizza. You can see the ladder truck on the right.

  • jeez, it must’ve been some hell of an explosion.. it shows that it could happen anywhere, anytime.. makes me a bit paranoid.. :D

  • really makes you wonder what happened. and what was going on in there. and where the missing person is. both the smoke and the melting snow create an eerie feeling. glad things are getting back to normal for you.

  • I like this cold light in the night in this suburban ambiance. Cool, a bit strange, but soo beautiful.

  • WOW! it does look a bit hetic there still a great shot well done!
