  1. It is beautiful. I hope the fires raging through California will be contained and out completely soon. There. are some bad ones in Colorado too. We’ve had a bad drought problem here too in Nebraska. I always love all your magnificent photos of nature, birds and wildlife. Take care, Cindy.

    • Thank you Joyce for such a very kind comment. Much of the west is burning and fire season is just getting started. The combination of covid and fire is heartbreaking. Stay well my friend დ

  2. I never thought I would ever associate smoke and fire with beauty till now. I guess it’s a thing of wonder if it’s not causing plenty of damage. Well captured, and the moon is the bonus!

  3. That is beautiful Cindy. Our sunsets for months during the fires were incredible. The colors were so varied but always ‘glowed’ in so many ways as the sun set each night. A silver lining among the heartache dear lady 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏼 🦋

  4. Oh Cindy – California has been in our thoughts and prayers. The smoke has come as far north as Vancouver. It has been hazy here and there have been health alerts for people with breathing difficulties. I can only imagine how it is for those who are close to the fire. A wonderful photos. Iconic.

    • We have all of September and October to get through. October is usually the worst month and it is so hot and so dry. I share your prayers for everyone in harm’s way. Hugs to you Rebecca დ

  5. Beatuiful colors but scary reasons behind the colors. I want to press like on this post but then my thoughts goes to those in the fires.. hmmm..

  6. Everything is on fire. Here too. Worst year ever for fires. There seems no end to it. We are at level one but I think they have it under control for now. Smoke is horrendous. Not going outside today either. Hope things are calm where you are now. Puts life in perspective though. Does make for interesting photos I have to get mine off the phone first.

    • It’s just watch and wait. Our local fire is already a monster and we have to get through October to see what else will burn. It is predicted to be a La Nina winter which is terrible news. Stay safe Marlene დ

  7. I’m so sorry, Cindy. It distresses me every year when this happens. And I heard this morning that the smoke and particles are supposed to spread over much of the globe, potentially causing eye irritation and breathing issues miles away. Stay safe!

  8. Crazy, Cindy!
    I saw some footage of the Golden Gate bridge in the daytime. The sky was red. Someone said the sky is red all day and all night. It’s like living on Mars.
    I’m worried California will burn right up!
    It’s going to get worse.
    Part of Canada’s last intact ice-shelf broke off in July. It is bigger than the island of Manhattan.
    Yet, the climate change deniers roll on.

  9. What a striking photo! I love the fingernail moon in the center. Smoke is everywhere. Our daughter in Oregon has sent us photos of her smokey neck in the woods, albeit far from the fires.
