Smokey Sunset #2

Last night I went back to the canal armed with my Nikon to take photos of the sun setting in the band of smoke. It didn’t disappoint. The sun was a red ball setting behind the smoke. The fire has grown in size and people’s homes are in danger. The smoke is blanketing the city making it hard to breath outdoors. Getting my daily walk is out of the question so I’m relegated to the treadmill at the gym. Hopefully the fire will be contained soon and the smoke will clear.

The smoke from the wildfires has returned – with a vengeance. I went out for a short walk around sunset last night and there was ash falling out of the sky. The sun was setting and there was a band at the base of the smoke where the sun was a big red ball. You can sort of see it between the trees in the first photo. In the second photo, the sun is blown out, but in actuality, it was a big red ball. I only had my phone with me so this was the best I could do. I sure hope the smoke dissipates soon – it’s hard to breath outdoors.
