Photo of the Day: The hills are burning in Ireland

The below photos were taken at Portsalon Golf Club in Northern Ireland by Contributing Editor, David Owen who is there reporting a story for Golf Digest. Three weeks without rain has created very dry conditions and gorse has ignited in several parts of the country.  The smoke is so heavy that roads have been closed in some places.
