The power of a forest fire
This past week there were wildfires in Northern California. The top image shows a woman returning to view what little remains of her home. The lower image shows melted chrome* that flowed away from a four-wheel-drive vehicle!! (Click to supersize images)
*Correction and update: as noted by WD1 in the comment section, this is likely not chrome, which has a melting point of 3465 Fahrenheit, but rather aluminum, which melts at "only" 1220 Fahrenheit.
