Autumn Beauty

Some trees have already lost all of their leaves and some are just coming into their full beauty. This maple is at its peak but it won’t be long before it, too, loses all of its leaves. So I will enjoy it while I can.

Smokey Sunset

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.
