Each coloring sheet is created from a real photograph. This photograph was taken by a wildfire project officer and firefighter named Craig Hope with the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, United Kingdom. It was taken on March 16th during a prescribed fire operation.
We hope you enjoyed coloring your sheet. How does it compare to the photo above? Does the photo make you think differently about the picture? Did you use different colors? We can’t wait to see everyone’s finished coloring, so be sure to share below or on social media (with your parent’s permission, of course)!
