There's nothing more devastating and deadly than a wildfire and although they wreak havoc wherever they occur, Los Angeles-based photographer Stuart Palley has spent the past few years capturing the more picturesque side to them as part of a series titled Terra Flamma.

Rather than simply focus on documenting California's wildfires Palley chooses to photograph surrounding landscapes, the stars above and the firefighters as they tackle the blaze, often using long exposure photos to capture a sense of movement and drama in the roaring flames.

Palley's photos reveal an awe-inspiring and beautiful side to a tragic and deadly disaster. You can follow more of Palley’s work on Instagram
