Heat of the night

Wildfires burning across the state mean a couple of things; bad air quality for Valley residents and spectacular sunsets.

With the noontime sky a shade of gray I knew th thick layer of haze would make for a diffused fiery sunset. I headed out to a lonely stretch of rural road and waited for the sun to dip down below the horizon.

A thin layer of clouds added to the filter across the sun. I shot until the sun’s disk dipped blow the mountain range leaving the countryside in a subdued pink light.

Back home I could see the moon climbing higher tinged orange by the smoke lingering in the air. it may make for sore throats and itchy eyes but the sunsets are certainly a sight to see.
