Smokey Sunset

I mentioned a few days ago that our atmosphere here has been very polluted lately with smoke from the many forest fires burning on the mainland. While the smoke had abated somewhat by the time I took this photo there was still enough left in the air to provide this nice red sunset over the Inner Harbor. That's one of the little harbor ferries making a late trip on the right.

Sunset... a much more reasonable time to take photos than sunrise. :)

They're saying as the wind from friday abates, the smoke is likely to return here. It did make for some fantastic sunsets with a beautiful glowing orange ball easily viewed in the last hour of the day.

Just beautiful!!! Last weekend when we first noticed the orange sun, I mentioned to Brian that the last time I saw an orange sun, the Oakland Hills were on fire. That night we found out it was due to the fires in BC.
