Taken on August 22, 2016
I guess I’m drawn to this scene when wildfire smoke is in the air! I went out this smoky evening of the 22nd seeking some dramatic sunset light. I drove for half an hour before I felt that the light was not going to cooperate. I was almost back home when the sky turned orange. The closest open sky area I could think of getting to fast was just a couple minutes away. After getting the shot, I compared it to a similar shot I took in August of last year. I didn’t realize until later that it was just shy of a few days a year ago under the very same smoky conditions! Last year’s photo was posted here for August 2015. Fine art prints are available.
